For a long time acknowledged as a major figure in the evolution of photography in New Zealand, Anne Noble has come to the fore as a major mid-career artist, regardless of medium. Noble has addressed a remarkable range of social, ethical and poetic issues—from landscape to religion, from the personal to the political, and from the ecology of the Kaikoura coast to the slow rhythms of life in a London convent. But throughout, her art has been distinguished by its formal beauty, the rigour of its ethics, its social breadth, and its enrichment of documentary photography with symbolic and poetic qualities. Patient, poised, and intimate, hers are images that discover states of grace amongst the faces and objects of ordinary life.
