The Cook Islands: Te Maeva Nui 2012

 

Victor Bond has been seriously seeing and making photographs for more than thirty years, from the days when he got his first camera, a Nikkormat, and his first enlarger, a Beseler 23C [with a colour head].

Those days of “film and poses” have long gone, but his fascination with the power of photography lives and thrives in the digital era.

These images, from The Cook Islands’ recent Te Maeva Nui Constitution Day celebrations, indicate his mind and his eye.
