The photographs on display by New Zealand artist Alexis Hunter (1948–2014), address gender politics, sexuality, and power dynamics.

Hunter originally trained as a painter, but switched to photography shortly after she moved to London in 1972: ‘I felt very strongly about feminism and photography better expressed my political ideals.’
