At the New Zealand Architecture Awards Dinner at the Viaduct Events Centre I was humbled to receive the President’s award citation:
Energetic, committed and enterprising, architectural photographer Simon Devitt has proved himself to be a very able chronicler of the work of New Zealand’s architects.
By dint of his skill, application and determination, Simon has carved out a significant and still- developing career in a challenging field in a challenging market.
Courteous and properly assertive, he has pursued his career with ambition and imagination, and his drive to master his craft has bought significant benefits to many practitioners.
His instigation and execution of demanding publishing projects is testament to the impressive seriousness with which he approaches his craft.
