Melbourne based Kiwi photographer Michael Krzanich explores the contemporary entity of mana in this show drawn from his photo book ‘Someone’s Mana’.
Also shown this year as part of the Head On International Photo Festival in Sydney, the series pulls the concept of mana back to the land and sea.
Shot in large format film and digital, the vivid colour and detail convey the strength of the show’s central theme.
Sold in over 40 countries by renown art book publisher HatjeCantz, the photo book ‘Someone’s Mana’ was a finalist in the recent New Zealand Photo Book of the Year.
With introduction by Witi Ihimaera and Haare Williams, and poetry by Haare Williams, the book and show offers a tribute to this very special cultural attribute.
