We love Sarginson Photography! Alice Sarginson grew up in Allandale, in a large white house in the middle of a paddock overlooking Lyttelton harbour, New Zealand.
Her family home planted the creative seed; she was surrounded by a strong design aesthetic, social tradition, a house trained Kunekune pig called Winston and a (far less successfully house trained) donkey,named Chico.
Alice’s father Euan Sarginson was a professional photographer and while hiding from the front of his ubiquitous lens, Alice naturally gravitated to behind one.
It became clear early in Alice’s life that she had inherited a creative eye and photographic passion as well.
In 2012, Alice was called home by earthquakes and family. She has decided to resettle in Christchurch, passionate about being involved in the growing creative vibe in the city’s regeneration. Alice has committed to renovating her father’s old studio which largely survived the earthquakes and reviving the Sarginson photographic spirit in Christchurch.
