After the success of exhibiting my Pacific Sisters photo series in both Te Papa and the Auckland Art Gallery, I was driven to create more fine art. This was a real passion project. The series of photos were taken over 26 years for the fashion collective, Pacific Sisters.
Dozens of logging trucks pass daily through this small town, mostly on their way to the Port of Napier. This one was so jaw-droppingly stunning we went back around the roundabout to get a better look. Owner- driver Jarvis Harrison had briefly parked up. He gave us the thumbs-up through the tinted glass, so we went to say gidday to him and his partner/wife, Rachel. Meeting up a few days later at their base in Napier, the KW T909, titled The Renegade, is polished to the hilt and looks mighty fine against the backdrop of the Napier industrial district.
