Holding On - FOLDED CARD
This art piece belongs in our Wahine series creative directing and concept by ADRIENNE WHITEWOOD - beautifully shot by Amanda Ashton Model is Kapua Bennett. Inspired by the postcards I saw of the guides of Whakarewarewa I loved imitating the obvious romanticism of the models and ever changing ideal of what Maori looks like in todays world.
This image was created using a backdrop repeated with Kapua holding a taiaha I layered her clothes with a slight reference to Frida Kahlo in some aspects looking at popular culture but referring to the phrase as we move into the future 'Kia may ki to ahurea Maori' Hold on to your Maori culture.
