Deep in the heart of King Country, at the end of 40 kilometres of winding gravel roads, is Ōhura. New Plymouth photographer Tony Carter found himself there one day and became fascinated by the people from this small, isolated rural community. Another World: Portraits from Ōhura
is the result of 30 visits to Ōhura over the following year.
Carter’s arresting portraits offer a glimpse into the lives of his subjects. They are photographed against backdrops of treasured possessions, domestic clutter, faded posters and beloved pets. Carter’s photographs are intimate, honest and direct – a view into another world.
