Description

Explore the faces of Manurewa in this compelling photography series by Adam Bryce.

Adam is best known as one of New Zealand's most successful fashion photographers having had his work published in some of the world's biggest magazines and having worked on campaigns for some of New Zealand's and the world's biggest brands.

Now, back in his home town he comes to realise what an amazing community of people he has been missing whilst working overseas. “Re visiting the community is something I have always wanted to do” says Bryce.” I am interested in normality – everyday people doing everyday things – and I feel like that’s not often conveyed when we are shown South Auckland. We’re often shown a very dark and an extreme side. More than anything, I hope these images reach people who might never have seen South Auckland like I have.” This exhibition, which has been 10 months in the making, captures the faces of his community. It aims to change the perception of Manurewa.

With support from the business association, Manurewa Local Board, Wiri Licensing Trust, community leaders, schools, police and more, Manurewa ​will comprise a book and an exhibition, to be launched on October 23rd with a powhiri and a speaking event – a chance for Bryce to say thank you. This story, of a community moving forward, and a boy going back, is one that all of Auckland is welcome to share in.
