A new photographic exhibition is opening next week, to mark the 800th anniversary of the signing of Magna Carta. It's a series of portraits aimed at promoting public discourse around the criminal justice system in New Zealand. It features portraits of Teina Pora, Lousie Nicholas and four prisoners who are currently incarcerated. It's called No Free Man: To No One Deny Justice, and the images are taken by Nigel Swinn.

Curator of the exhibition, Dr Erin Griffey, is an expert on portraiture and Head of Art History from the University of Auckland.
