This classic suite of iconic images is featured alongside more recent images by the artist, who continues to document the changing circumstances and lifestyles of Pacific Island people, in Auckland and elsewhere in the Pacific. These images were printed by Megan Jenkinson and the legendary Real Pictures studio in His Majesty’s Arcade, Auckland, in the 1980s.
