rejuvenation

Around this time of the year, I always start to feel super inspired and motivated about all the incredible things I could be putting into action for the fresh new year. I spend December getting myself organized — including getting a new diary and making sure the documents and photos on my computer are filed away appropriately — just so I can start the new year without having to tidy up the loose threads of the year just gone. So that means that now is the the time that I get to do the fun stuff and start to draw up brainstorms and lists of what I want to do and where I want to go. D-Photo is all part of that — I’m thoroughly thrilled that, over the next few…

checking in with lucy

You would have seen Tracey Robinson’s photograph of Lucy, the chimpanzee, from Hamilton Zoo in Issue No. 69. We recently heard from Dave Smart of Hamilto Zoo, who provided us with further information about Lucy and her surroundings. Lucy is a 40-year-old chimpanzee, who is the mother of the two males in the troop of five that is cared for by Hamilton Zoo. The troop is made up of Lucy, her sons, Luka and Lucifer, and two other females, Sally and Sanda. Smart says that to an untrained eye, a solo chimp can seem unhappy. “As chimps are considered to be our close relatives, we certainly identify with them, and with that comes the tendency to humanize them somewhat. Contentment or sadness in animals, however, is a feeling usually created by the observer,”…

rare photos see the light

Wellington’s Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa has recently opened its new season of Nga Toi | Arts Te Papa with an exhibition titled New Zealand Photography Collected. Hundreds of rare photographs captured by Kiwi photographers throughout the years have come out from hibernation in the Te Papa archives and are now adorning the walls for visitors to admire. The exhibition, which includes work by Anne Noble, Alfred Burton, Brian Brake, Marti Friedlander, Laurence Aberhart, and Gavin Hipkins, among many others, puts on view a wide variety of styles and genres, such as 19thcentury portraits, landscapes, and modern-art photography.
