Description

This is the first image release for my new exhibition – Wander. It’s a very special place in New Zealand called Milford Sound.

Milford Sound was known to the Maori as ‘Piopiotahi‘, which translates to ‘a single piopio’ – a native thrush bird which is unfortunately now extinct in New Zealand.

The name derives from the legend about the last endeavour of Maui-tikitiki-a-Taranga – the great Polynesian demigod. Accompanied by his piopio he set off on a journey to win immortality for all mankind.

To achieve this goal, he challenged Hine-nui-te-po – The Goddess of Death – to a duel. If he won, he would be rewarded with the prize of eternal life. However, if you hadn’t already guessed, he failed in his attempt and was brutally crushed to death by the goddess. It is said that his piopio, who witnessed this terrible tragedy, flew south to the fiords to mourn his loss – giving birth to ‘Piopiotahi‘.
