The couple met Cade Chudy, a US-based travelling photographer, on Facebook after finding his advertising on a wedding-related page. He was offering packages of edited photos and video with drone footage for a $2000 fee. He delivered 1500 unsalvageable sample photos, then ghosted the Brattys.
A good photographer has tens of thousands of dollars worth of kit, is on their feet for 12 hours on your wedding day and spends a long time editing the photos afterwards. The Brattys didn’t report Chudy to police because they couldn’t sue him for breach of contract if he was overseas. Consumer New Zealand recommends checking sellers’ online profiles and contacting the tradesman before handing over money.
It is not unusual for an artist to be inspired by another and to allude to or imitate them in homage. But it is less common that such an interaction becomes the basis of a significant project and that two artists with such distinctive practices—sculptor Cat Auburn and photographer Fiona Pardington—come together to create such a compelling synergy of work as in ’Looking Up To You’.

Cabinet Card photographs (as shown here) consisted of photographic prints mounted on cards of varying sizes that were widely distributed and popular in the mid-to-late 1800s. In her sculptural work, After ‘Still Life with Dying Purple Dahlia’, Auburn reproduces an image from this series using objects that she sources locally: the lilies from a local dairy, the tamarillo from Mirimar New World, and a Eiffel Tower souvenir trinket.
