Harvey Benge- Auckland Weekend, light and shadow under clear blue summer skies

Harvey Benge is a photographer based in Auckland, New Zealand & Paris, France. Harvey was part of Issue #3 of Excerpt Magazine and also shared his 2013 Highlights with Excerpt in December.

Here are some photos taken by Harvey last weekend. He says of them, "Aucklanders were spoilt for choice this last weekend. With the NRL Auckland Nines, rapper Eminem's concert and the annual Lantern Festival celebrating Chinese New Year, there was something for everybody. I took to the streets and made these photographs."
