Living in a world where the term 'Endangered' has sadly become all too familiar.
Our habitat is endangered, the oceans are under threat and many species are facing extinction.
We too as a species have become 'Endangered'
Not in numbers, but in our essence.
I feel the greatest threat to humanity is loss of culture, tradition and our connection with the earth. Something that is still very present in the worlds remaining indigenous cultures.
It is perhaps this 'loss' of connection that has created the 'Endangered' world we live in today.
With this exhibition I have placed my focus on the Tahitian culture, people and a way of life that has long been under threat.
