New Zealand Story

Plenty of photographs have been taken of the architecturally designed Te Oro Community Centre but New Zealand Story were interested in capturing how the local community interacted and used this beautiful space. 

The Skip team approached the Te Oro assignment as it would a documentary, immersing themselves for weeks in the art, dance and other cultural events and classes. The resulting images authentically and honestly depicted the spirit and energy of a thriving community, and became a valuable addition to the New Zealand Story Resource Centre.
