Over the past two years, German-born photographer Lennart Maschmeyer has been working on a Portrait of Wellington’s thriving art community. The resulting book titled “10.98 seconds of Wellington Artists” is the first work of its kind in Wellington. Its aim is to capture an authentic impression of the people creating and carrying the spirit of the city.

None of the photos are staged, they are taken from life. Combining portraits of the artists and musicians at work with shots in their personal spaces, they provide the viewer a glimpse behind the façade.

They see a musician in trance on stage as well as having a laugh with his family or an artist in intense concentration as well as unwinding in his favourite cafe. It is an intimate view into not only the artistic community of New Zealand’s capital, but the process of creating art in general.

Inside these pages are photographs of musicians on stage or painters at work, capturing both their artistic and private sides. Altogether, the amount of time captured by photographs in this book adds up to just over ten seconds, as is the title.

The book features portraits of 55 painters, sculptors, street artists, designers, video artists and musicians—including newcomers as well as established names such as Samuel Scott (Musician: The Phoenix Foundation), Freeman White (Painter), Jon ‘Drypnz’ (Street Artists), Warren Maxwell (Musician: Little Bushman, FFD, Trinity Roots), Jess Chambers (Musician), Ryan Prebble (Musician, The Nudge, Fly my Pretties) Marianne Muggeridge (Painter), James Cyole (Musician: The Nudge, Newtown Rocksteady) and many more.
