Artist's Description

yesterday that I picked them up from Auckland. I didnt really have any idea what was on them, I didnt care. But this morning we decided to scan them to see what treasures might be there. The very first scan made my eyes well up with tears. As did most of the rest. It caught me unawares, these people I did not know, these voices I would never hear and their stories that I would never be told…where they lived, why they settled in this beautiful land we call Aotearoa and the hardship they must have endured travelling here. After viewing these wonderful negatives and turning them into pictures, my mission now is to try and find out all the questions I have swimming in my head…and to hopefully find someone who belongs to them and will treasure them even more than I.
