This exhibition is the second installment of Mitchell's ongoing survey of tattoo in Aotearoa, New Zealand and is comprised of thirty large format studio portraits of twenty-four subjects recorded on a traditional 4x5 film camera system. Mitchell has been photographing tattoo since 2006 resulting in the previous exhibition Portraits of Ink at Photospace Gallery in 2012, the first in a series of exhibitions documenting the tattoo renaissance within New Zealand society. Tattoos appear to function as objects of transformation for the contemporary wearer, Mitchell's images engage with questions around the construction of personal identity and cultural exchange. While Portraits of Ink focused exclusively on subjects whose tattoos were acquired in the Auckland region, the current exhibition Tattoo Collectors relocates this focus to the subjects of Wellington tattooists.
