Commissioned by the Auckland Festival of Photography as part of the 2016 Pingyao International Photography Festival, Ata Te Tangata is a survey show focusing on current practice by photographers of Māori and Pacific descent from Aotearoa New Zealand.
The people and landscape of the Moana have been viewed and constructed by the lens of the West since the first contact; photography played a huge part in contributing to the visual mythology that defined the Pacific body, the land and ocean.
Ata Te Tangata redefines the gaze - the person behind the lens is genealogically and geographically a part of the community they are portraying allowing for more nuanced representations, reflecting the world around them. Their images tell a multitude of stories, bringing to light the people and landscapes of a contemporary Polynesian experience unique to Aotearoa New Zealand.
Galleries One, Two, Three and Four.
Opening Wednesday 24 May, 5pm
