The Remembrance Project

This series of photographs was made in and around the small Bay of Plenty town of

Kawerau. The photographs were made during several walks over the course of this

year. Kawerau is my hometown — my family lived there for about 30 years. Kawerau

was established in 1953 as an adjunct to the newly constructed Tasman Pulp and

Paper Mill. Kawerau takes its name from a Maori chief who lived in the area around

1200AD.
