Times photo Wayne Martin By Chris harrowell aRTIST Caitlin Soutar is us- ing her digital camera to open people’s eyes to the everyday world around them. The 30-year-old publicly dis- plays a collection of her photo- graphic artworks at the Uxbridge Cafe in Howick until April 22. Ms Soutar’s exhibition, enti- tled My Little Eye, features 20 digital pictures on canvas and corrugated iron. The Howickian says she’s excited to be holding her first solo creative showcase. “I’m really happy with it,” the former Pakuranga College pupil told the Times. “It’s been quite a bit of work getting stuff together and organ- ising myself, but a lot of fun as well.” Ms Soutar studied photogra- phy at the Manukau Institute of Technology for two years and earns a living by taking children’s photo portraits. She specialises artistically in shooting everyday objects and subjects most people wouldn’t pay attention to when passing. Among the images seen in her solo exhibition at the Uxbridge Cafe are scenes of Howick Beach, flowers, an old shed and a variety of plants. “I think I see things most peo- ple overlook,” says Ms Soutar. “A lot of the photos in my exhi- bition were taken in my parents’ garden in Howick. I love the lit- tle details in things.” Among the subjects Ms Soutar enjoys photographing the most is the natural environment. “I like to go off-track when I’m bush walking and collect leaf skeletons,” she says. “I think they’re beautiful and I’m interested in the way nature repeats itself. It’s the same with skin cells, in that there’s an inter- locking pattern.” Ms Soutar found it difficult adjusting to a digital camera, having used a film camera for many years. “I loved my old camera and I’m a huge technophobe,” she says. “I love it now and have found it opened up a whole new world. “I’m so thrilled to have every- thing finally come together for the exhibition. “I hope people who see it rec- ognise things from around them and take time to look at them in a deeper way.” Caitlin Soutar’s photographic ■■ art exhibition, My Little Eye, publicly displays at the Uxbridge Cafe, 35 Uxbridge Road, How- ick, until April 22. Entry is free and all works are for sale.
