Winterstellar is an exhibition of Astrophotography and Videography

It is about SPACE, the stars and what we see from our place amongst them.

In OTAGO we are blessed. Our climate gives us many clear nights. Our sparse population means there is little light pollution. The Southern Hemisphere is the best place to see the Galactic Core, the heart of our galaxy – the Milky Way. We are close enough to the pole to see the Aurora Australis or Southern Lights. 

However, this exhibition is also very much about TIME. We celebrate Matariki – the Maori new year, a time to reflect on what has passed and rejoice in new beginnings.

Winterstellar shares photographic works by both experienced photographers and those just starting out. These stunning images are a compression of time showing much more than can be seen with the naked eye. More stars, more colour. Time Lapse MOVIES in the exhibition are a combination of thousands of ultra high definition snapshots of time captured over hours.

This is Winterstellar 2022
