Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington supports the noble work of a large pool of researchers across wide ranging disciplines. This project, initiated and art directed by David Lewis, was for the purpose of honouring a selection of these individuals, to highlight the projects they are working on, and the integrity each of them brings to their field.
Ilan Noy, Taehyun Rhee, Elizabeth Stanley, and Ocean Mercier are represented in these portraits, which serve to illustrate ideas that connect to the revolutionary work they do.

Amber-Jayne Bain is a photographer of people, place, activity and object. Creating imagery of artisans who make finely crafted things is a particular passion, as is documenting the chaos of restaurant life, capturing the essence of a person in a carefully seen portrait, and witnessing the rituals of agricultural business. Finding and shaping light is paramount to the work Amber-Jayne creates.
