Born in 1955 Eketahuna, New Zealand, Doc Ross is a self-taught photographer. Since moving to Christchurch in 1998, Ross has been one of the city’s most intimate biographers, explaining his passion as “capturing fleeting social and urban transactions with a flâneur’s eye.”
Since the year 2000 Ross has made several international trips connected to his photography, including travelling to the Middle East and Europe, where he showed works at the New Zealand Ambassadors residence in Tehran in 2000, and in 2002 he photographed his travels through China.
His work was also included in Sotheby’s, New York ‘Contemporary Photography from Australia and New Zealand’ exhibition in 2002, and exhibited at Sydney’s Yellow House Gallery in 2016.
Ross’ work and photo-books are held in public and private collections in New Zealand, Australia and the USA.
