Exhibition on kapa haka group

7:02 am on 19 June 2010

Images of kapa haka group Te Waka Huia feature in a new exhibition at the Lake House Art Centre in Takapuna.

Photographer Kathrin Simon was granted unrestricted access to the west Auckland roopu as it was preparing for last year's Te Matatini national Maori performing arts festival.

She says the project gave her not only a passion for kapa haka, but also a great respect for the artists.

Waatea News reports the pictures are not for sale, but Ms Simon hopes to tour the exhibition nationally.
