Cor­ban Es­tate Arts Cen­tre

New Zealand D-Photo - - WHAT’S ON | 2018 AUCKLAND FESTIVAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY -

Through pho­tog­ra­phy, Linda T aims to make vis­i­ble those that are of­ten mis­rep­re­sented in main­stream so­ci­ety, with a spe­cial fo­cus on Pa­cific and Ma- ori peo­ple and LGBTQI com­mu­ni­ties. Draw­ing on ex­pe­ri­ence and ma­te­rial gath­ered as an ar­chiv­ist, com­mu­nity doc­u­menter, and artist, a ‘liv­ing ar­chive’ is cre­ated, con­sist­ing of in­ter­views, pho­to­graphs, and sound record­ings, al­low­ing view­ers an in­sight into the per­sonal and po­lit­i­cal lives of those who may oth­er­wise be hid­den be­hind the mask of the main­stream me­dia.
