The gallery is a wonderful stop in Whataroa because of the breathtaking and rare shots of New Zealand all around there which will be technically impossible to see from our normal sight. Highly recommended to appreciate intense beauty of New Zealand through Petr’s pictures!

This is a beautiful gallery of stunning photographs of New Zealand. Not just the photos but the gallery itself is nice. It is on the main road and there is a sign. We were lucky that the artist was there too.

Petr's photography of Nature in New Zealand is beautiful. One of a kind - a true artist! This was a gem of a gallery right outside of the tiny town of Whataroa.
