Ka Ora (I Live), the last show at ORA Gallery New York. It is a group show featuring artists who have shown there previously (including myself) under the steady watch of Giarna TeKanawa.
I will have several photographs on show (available for purchase).
"KA ORA (I LIVE) is the last show for ORA Gallery New York and a celebration of the extraordinary life of a small Chelsea gallery. ORA has been a window into Aotearoa New Zealand and a marae (community hub) for many New Zealanders in New York.
Gallery creator Giarna TeKanawa took up an unexpected opportunity to open a gallery and generously welcomed a broad range of artists from Aotearoa, revealing a vibrant slice of our homeland’s creative talent to New York. What began as a three-month pop-up show continued to weave itself into a rich lineage of exhibits, often organically emerging through connections from one artist to the next. As ORA settled itself into 7th Ave, it also welcomed a growing whanau (extended family) of New Zealanders living in New York or visiting, a small patch of Aotearoa for all of us."

Great to have two photos in the honorable mentions at the 6th Annual Mobile Photo Awards in the "Street" and "Nature & Wildlife" categories.
This is the sixth straight year I have been lucky enough to be a finalist amongst such a talented group of photographers.

Four of my photographic works were part of the first Summer Salon show at Greenpoint Gallery, Brooklyn. The one-day show featured a number of artists over two levels with live music. It was a great night with some fantastic art.
Great to be part of the MIRA Mobile Prize again (for mobile photography).
Over 6,000 submissions were received this year. 50 works were printed and hung at the gallery in Porto, Portugal and accompanied by a further 150 works as a digital projection. The theme this year was "Connections".
"The MIRA MOBILE PRIZE is an initiative of the gallery MIRA FORUM (Porto, Portugal) which rewards the best images captured and edited with mobile devices: smartphones and tablets."

“Anthropocene is the contentious term for the age we live in. Literally anthropo “man” cene “new”, it refers to the first era in which humans have had a permanent impact on Earth. Our relationship with the natural world is timeless and essential, but the accelerating rate of climate change has brought the discussion about our responsibility for nurturing the environment into stark relief. In these works, we see a spectrum of desire to capture, influence, understand, and form a spiritual connection with the world we inhabit. What appears to be untouched is not, and what is visibly manipulated reveals a deep fascination with how we can alter nature and manufacture environments."
