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!
