Arts in Oxford Gallery- Ron Hazlehurst's photographs from the '60s & '70s

Main Image.

Ron Hazlehurst grew up in suburban Linwood through the great social and musical era of the 1950s and ‘60s.  His mother Morag introduced him to photography early, and as a teenager at Boys High School he started processing and enlarging his prints, anything to avoid the cross country running events and compulsory school cadets.

Elvis Presley and the Cuban missile crisis merged into the Beat generation and the rise of rock and roll, Bob Dylan, the Stones and Woodstock. Mix this in with anti-apartheid demonstrations, the Vietnam protests and the rise of the Women’s Movement.  Christchurch was a city undergoing significant social change.   During his university student flatting years Ron carried his Minolta SRT101, photographing his friends, companions and environs. He captured the atmosphere of the changing political and cultural landscape of Canterbury.  The images in this exhibition are from the early ‘60s through to mid ‘70s. (Text courtesy of Arts in Oxford Gallery)
