Ngahuia Harrison & Kellie Masiutama

Papakura Art Gallery proudly presents the work of photographers Ngahuia Harrison (Ngātiwai, Te Kapotai, Ngāti Pukenga, Pākehā) and Kellie Masiutama (Ngāpuhi).

Harrison’s beautiful large-scale photographic works from the ongoing series Coastal Cannibals, explore the impacts, contradictions, and possibilities of ‘development’ for iwi and hapū within Whangārei Te Rerenga Paraoa (the Whangārei harbour).

Papakura photographer, Masiutama’s text and photographic work are inspired by her journey through the Māori philosophy of well-being, Hauora. Te Ao Māori worldviews acknowledge the interconnectedness and interrelationship of all living and non-living things, where health is nurtured through spiritual, physical, emotional and social balance.

Workshop: Walking with water 10am–1pm Sat 21 May 2022

Join artist Ngahuia Harrison for an interactive photographic walk and flowing discussion from the Papakura Art Gallery to the Manukau Harbour.
