 Edith and George: in our sea of islands

Initially shown at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery, Wellington (2019), Edith and George: in our sea of islands is recontextualised in the Homestead Galleries. With 100 years separating them, photographers Edith Amituanai (b.1980) and the late George Crummer (1868-1953) each capture moments in time from their own local Pacifica communities. The two sets of portraits present important conversations around colonisation, migration, settlement and identity in the Pacific.
