This year marks 50 years of Samoan Independence. In the last five decades Samoans in New Zealand have photographed their lives at home, at celebrations, at church and at events for family records. In the last decade a new generation has recorded these same things that now command critical comment and are exhibited in galleries and published in the media.

Against their parents' warning "you'll never get anywhere with that art,"  these photographers - Penitoa Finau, Tux Hika, Raymond Sagapolutele and Fofoga Setoga Tuala - are making names for themselves and showing how Samoan and Pacific identities are re-invented across the generations.
