We talk to Wildlife Photographer of the Year for 2018 Marcel van Oosten about how he captured his award-winning shot and how he turned his hobby into his career. Auckland-based Guy Needham talks about his journey to photograph the world’s vanishing cultures. The latest leg takes him to Tanzania to document a people whose way of life reaches back to the Stone Age. Back at home, Megan Bowers-Vette’s latest project, Us, looks at survivors of sexual abuse. She explains how she uses photography as a tool not only for storytelling, but also for healing. Palmerston North–based photographer Rachael Smith brings together a collection of images from her globetrotting to demonstrate how a fresh perspective can stoke the magic in everyday life.
