8 February – 13 February 2019
Over the past five years, New Zealand-based photographer Guy Needham has been documenting indigenous peoples in remote parts of the world. Driven by a desire to learn their traditions, his journeys have taken him from the rainforests of the Amazon to the highlands of Papua New Guinea to the arid valleys of Ethiopia. For the first time, he is presenting éxi fylés, a curated collection of portraits and stories from six tribes. This exhibition is a testament to their uncluttered way of life and provides a sharp contrast to Western society’s preoccupation with ‘insta’ and ‘more’. It is designed to self-question what we prioritise and value in our consumption-driven lives.
