TEOARANI MAXWELL

Hopu Whakaahua 2021

TAONGA

Teo’s investigation explored what the definition of taonga was through photography. Teo started with a series of photos of her mum and a family heirloom, a taonga. She explored her mums moko kauae, her nephew, her whanau taonga and the intricate relationship that weaves them together. 
Teoarani’s photography boards are a journey of rediscovery into taonga.
