Auckland dealer Gary Langsford’s exhibiting a suite of photographs of patched NZ gang members.  Taken four years ago by Jono Rotman, the series includes a portrait of a Mongrel Mob member currently on trial for murder. Despite protestations from the victim’s family, Langsford is refusing to remove the image, stating: “I don’t think that’s our role. It would create a very bad precedent. It would be like the media censoring freedom of speech”.  The show runs until May 24th.
