Get set to see our world in a new way at NPDC’s Puke Ariki Museum this summer – through the eyes of our young photographic artists.

Armed with a camera, a creative mind and a unique perspective, photography students aged 13-18 at ZEAL Taranaki transform the familiar into art in the “This Is Our World” exhibition.

Over 2020 and 2021, the students recorded their surroundings while experimenting with composition, light and shadow, contrast and exposure. They reveal features of our world that often go unnoticed, bringing our attention to unique patterns, relationships and gaps between otherwise familiar locations.

Many of the students took the stunning photos using only smartphones. No fancy equipment. Instead, they relied on skills learnt through the ZEAL Photography course and a healthy dose of natural flair. The results can be seen in This Is Our World, reflecting a wealth of creative talent in the region.

Catch “This Is Our World” at Puke Ariki Museum until March 6, to see what you’ve been missing
