The images that make up the “Winterstellar” exhibition 2022, which opened at Central Stories Museum and Art Gallery in Alexandra last night, can be a single shot where the camera lens is left open for an hour or more, or stitched together from hundreds of frames taken over time.

Taking a single shot over a long period is a “really brave” choice, said Winterstellar Charitable Trust chairman Andy Davey.

“It only takes a car going by or a gust of wind to change everything.”

He is referring to an image titled Blackhead Star Trail which was the Natural Category runner-up for photographer Yang Zheng, who also won the Jury Prize with his image of the Mt Cargill communications tower in Dunedin.
