Honouring Our Veterans

Gareth & I are working on a collection of Portraits of NZ Veterans. Similar to our Kaumatua Project these Portraits are of retired and serving Veterans. It started with WWII Veterans and has expanded to include Vietnam Veterans and veterans of other conflicts.

As an Accredited Member of The Australian Institute of Professional Photography Te-o-wai participated in the Reflections Project photographing WWII Veterans living in Australia. Inspired by the appreciation and stories of these Veterans we were moved to offer the same opportunity to NZ Veterans living here in Australia.

At the moment Poihakena Portraits is displaying 7 photographs from our collection at Fernz Cafe, 144 Queen St St Marys, NSW Australia. The Portraits will be on display till the 30th of November 2016.

Head into the Cafe to see the Portraits. This page will be updated as we add future venues for the collection. facebook-post-exhibition
