Beautiful mystery behind donated photo at Port Chalmers' Pea Sea Art Gallery

From Checkpoint, 5:53 pm on 19 May 2023

It's a beautiful mystery. Two stunning photos of a local man mailed to a Dunedin art gallery with a handwritten note and a polite request - "Please give one of the photos to the man in picture and sell the other copy and give the man the money too."

The photo's subject was snapped outside a dairy where he was asking for change.

Pea Sea Art Gallery in Port Chalmers is keen to make good on the request.

Co-owner Robert Scott talks to Lisa Owen.
