For better or worse: What are the pros and cons of running your own business?
The number one Pro and Con of working for yourself is: It’s all on you!
Hopes and dreams: What next?
I am currently working on my first solo exhibition: The Papatuanuku Series. I wanted to use my skills to create a photo series that portrayed a kaupapa close to my own heart: “We should nurture our women and land like they nurture us”.
I have photographed 13 pregnant mamas (including myself) in landscapes where they look almost as one with each other yet still being independent, resembling both as important. I want to encourage the viewer to really think about how they treat such beauty, how without these two taonga we would not exist so we MUST take care of them. I also want the work to provoke discussion and invite questioning of what can we can do better to maintain this beauty.
Aside from that, I just enjoy watching my little jungle warriors grow into the leaders of tomorrow and continue helping others tell their whanau story through photography.
