30 MAY - 12 JUN 2022

Whilst New Zealand stayed home, queued up, stayed positive, put on hold and remained in limbo, New Zealand Media & Entertainment (NZME) visual journalists were tasked with documenting daily life, daily lockdown news, daily weather and changes as well as the status quo during one of the most challenging periods in recent history. They juggled a work-life balance and the same family life challenges in order to bring fourth wall visuals and standalone vistas as well as complimentary colour and document to the news stories needed for NZE journalists and newsdesks...

This exhibition is a small showcase of 100's of images taken during the last two years showing the ordinary and the familiar through the lens of the extraordinary coverage of: a global pandemic, challenging weather events and the new realities of disruptions and upheavals that affected all New Zealanders. A complimentary NZME talk is planned to discuss; being a visual journalist during the disruption of "the working from home" era; the work to continue to take arresting visuals, and remaining positive through one of the most challenging times for "mainstream media''.
