Auckland-based Guy Needham’s project to document remote tribes has spanned continents and many years. His aim is to bring the culture and stories of these people to modern eyes. On his most recent trip, he visited the Hadzabe people of Tanzania, who are described as the closest living relatives of the humans that first emigrated from Africa.
Guy’s photographs are internationally renowned; his earlier series of the Huli of Papua New Guinea, Final Touches, will appear as part of the Postcard Salon in Berlin’s Jarvis Dooney gallery in March. Later this year, New Zealanders will be treated to an exhibition of his images of the Hadzabe of Tanzania at Grey gallery, running 28 May until 8 June.
