Auckland Festival of Photography Trust is pleased to present the international documentary photography from five photojournalists with an eye on our world. Screenings run for 20 minutes in total.

Gestes Gitans Perpignan
Award winning photojournalist, Jeanne Taris, France. Presented with the support of the French Embassy.

An immersive experience of social observation with the marginalised Gitans community living in the Saint-Jacques district in the historic heart of Perpignan. In July 2018, Jeanne Taris carried off the Leica International Portfolio Award at the Festival Voies Off in Arles. Since then her Awards and accolades have included Kuala Lumpur International Photo Awards, Maghreb Photography Awards, Invitée d'honneur journées du reportage 2019, Cuba Libre, Copenhagen Photo Festival, Finaliste des photographies de l’année - APPPF plus more with her work in exhibitions in Malaysia, Italy, Arles 2019 and Nuit De La Photo, Lausanne.

The Female Eye
Curator Alison Stieven-Taylor, artists: Kerry Pryor, Helga Salwe, Ilana Rose, Nicola Dracoulis (Australia). Presented with the support of the Australian High Commission.

Each artist has created a body of work that is infused with their own visual signature as they explore four very diverse, yet universal themes - loss, longing, love and hope.

Kaupapa

Nā te Hui Ahurei o te Hopu Whakaahua o Tāmaki-makaurau te maringanui ki te whakaatu i ngā whakaahua pakipūmeka o te ao nō ngā kairīpoata ā-whakaahua e matanui ana ki te ao whakaahua.

Nō Wīwī a Jeanne Taris. I whakawhiwhia e ia ki tētahi tohu kairīpoata ā-whakaahua, ā, e tautokona ana e te Tari Māngai Kāwanatanga o Wiwi i a ia. He tirohanga, he kitenga i te ao o tētahi hapori motuhake e kīa nei ko ngā ‘Gitans’ e noho ana ki te pūtake o Perpignan, ki te rohe o Saint-Jacques.

Ka whakaaturia e te Hui Ahurei o te Hopu Whakaahua o Tāmaki-makaurau i tēnei kohinga mahi, arā, ko ‘The Female Eye’ te ingoa nō Ahitereiria. Kua whakaaturia i runga anō i te tautoko o te Kōmihana Matua o Ahitereiria. Kei ia kaitoi tōna ake kohinga mahi e whakaatu nei i tōna tirohanga motuhake. Heoi, hei hononga i wā rātou mahi katoa ko ngā kaupapa nui nei – ko te pōkaikaha, ko te mānakonako o te ngākau, ā, ko te aroha me te manawa ora o te tangata.

Tautiaki Alison Stieven-Taylor.
