Celebrating the major new book by Dr Rangiora Panoho,
MAORI ART, Landscape, Architecture and Theory (2015, David

contribution to the book - from work over a twenty-year period -
of leading New Zealand photographers Mark Adams and
Haruhiko Sameshima. The exhibit explores several other
critical notions associated with the acronym I O U, including
current claims over land and water by Rangihiroa's hapu.

Rangihiroa Panoho' s hapu 'subtribal groups' are Te Uriroroi and
Te Parawhau, affiliations Ngapuhi and Ngati Whatua.
Rangihiroa and Haruhiko will be at the opening.
