Peace in 10,000 Hands

From Standing Room Only, 12:50 pm on 7 February 2016

Despite having two grandfathers who had a deep interest in photography, and after high school being accepted into a photography course, for many decades Queenstown artist Stuart Robertson pursued other interests and career paths.

But Stuart told Standing Room Only's Shaun D Wilson that in the last few years he has put all his time, money, and passion into a huge photography project that is gaining him notice around the world: an attempt to capture 10,000 images of people with a single white rose.

Peace in 10,000 Hands is showing at Page Blackie Gallery in Wellington, and there is a book documenting the initial stages of the project called Peace In 10,000 Hands: The First Collection.
