From The Pit is a curated exhibition of New Zealand music photography, featuring images of New Zealand musicians captured by some of the best music photographers in the country. The exhibition is on display from 02 May onwards during NZ Music Month at Flying Out and available now at the Q Theatre in Auckland.

Reuben Raj (Radio 13/SomeBizarreMonkey) and Dave Simpson (Getty Images/UnderTheRadar) got together in mid-2018 with a mission to promote music photography in New Zealand. With support from Independent Music New Zealand and the New Zealand Music Commission , a print exhibition called From The Pit curated by both Dave and Reuben was launched at the 2019 Taite Music Awards on 16 April.

Dozens of photographers end up ‘in the pit’ at music venues up and down the country each week, capturing images of New Zealand's vibrant music scene. It's a difficult and unpredictable environment to work in, but these photographers work tirelessly to capture the magic they see before them.

Part artists, part historians, but all music fans, they strive to take the perfect photo, which reflects how it felt to be at the concert and communicates the excitement of a live music event.

The full print exhibition features the work of the following photographers and runs throughout NZ Music Month (May 2019) at the Flying Out record store on Pitt Street in Auckland. Many of the images are available for purchase.
