TAL­ENTED KIWIS

New Zealand D-Photo - - EDITORIAL -

It some­times feels that we’re a bit iso­lated from the rest of the world here in lit­tle old New Zealand, and that it’s a lot harder for Kiwi artists to get no­ticed in­ter­na­tion­ally, but, when you take a closer look, Kiwis are mak­ing it big all over the show. Even in just the last few months, I’ve been made aware of Cathy Carter be­ing a fi­nal­ist in the Syd­ney Head On Photo Fes­ti­val and then tak­ing her exhibition to New York. Then, there’s The In­ter­na­tional Col­lab­o­ra­tion Project, one half of which is Kiwi Deb Young, who’s been work­ing with Amer­i­can Fran­cisco Diaz and is hav­ing their com­bined works seen around the world. And when you check out the news sec­tion of this is­sue, you’ll read all about an Auck­land Fes­ti­val of Pho­tog­ra­phy exhibition fea­tur­ing works by pho­tog­ra­phers of Maori and Pa­cific her­itage, which will travel to China for the Pingyao In­ter­na­tional Pho­tog­ra­phy Fes­ti­val. And that’s just to name a few!
