A community focused exhibition of photography presented for Auckland Festival of Photography by Waitakere College senior students. These images cover three different aspects of West Auckland identity ‘Kainga – my backyard’, ‘He Tangata – He Haporo – People and Communities’ and ‘Toku Whenua – Our Landscape’. Each photograph has been inspired by a poem, story or statement that encapsulates a thread of this kaupapa to why ‘West is Best’.
