Mr. Slack's photographic studio will be opened to-morrow. It is situated in the Gladstone Road, adjacent to Mr. Aislabie's shop. The studio is tastefully fitted up and the appliances for photographic purposes are on the latest and most approved principles. Mr. Slack is very clever in all branches of the photographic art,

Mr. Slack, photographer, opened his new studio and commenced business in Gisborne this morning. His apparatus is a perfect one, and the studio is very tastefully fitted up. As an example of the lightning rapidity in which the portraits are taken by the instantaneous process, we were shown to-day a photograph of a leading member of our staff, on the table alongside him being a copy of this journal. The visitor had dropped into the studio on business totally unconnected with either photography or journalism. "Be seated a second," said the artist, and the visitor obeyed. "You see that circle, projecting from that box on three legs," said the artist —" it is the latest invention in cameras." The visitor looked, and as quick as thought the artist removed a cap and replaced it again. The time of the visit had not extended over two or three minutes, when, to the surprise of the visitor, an excellent photograph of himself and of the Poverty Bay Herald were shown him. These were the first subjects " immortalised" by the new photographer at his studio.
