Archived: Kauri Dieback Photography Project Exhibition

by Michelle Hyslop. Words by Andrea Ewing

A new photography exhibition examines kauri dieback through a different lens by telling the personal stories of 26 people and their fight to save – and protect – the giant trees, as well as people who are affected by the track closures.

The stunning images, created by photographer Michelle Hyslop, will be suspended in the trees of Albert Park in central Auckland from February 2. 

Hyslop embarked on a six-month journey that took her from Waipoua Forest in the Far North to Rotorua, meeting local iwi, scientists, and members of the public who had a kauri story to tell.

The resulting exhibition features 31 powerful images aimed to create an emotional, human connection to the issue, encouraging people to source further information on the disease that is devastating our native trees.
