kia ora folks (that's hello in NZ-speak) - greetings from new zealand, which is where i'll be based over the following week hunting out the latest and greatest. i've no idea what to expect as its been about nine years since i last stepped foot on this here hearty soil but i will say one thing, i don't remember the last time i inhaled air as fresh or as clean as this! more about that later. in the meantime i'm loving these tribal pics and can't wait to learn more about maori tribal culture and how - if at all - in transpires into anything during the countries fashion week. its kinda frida kahlo with a definite injection of warrior-style. stay tuned..
