During April I had a gig at the Auckland Royal Easter Show having been asked to be their media photographer as well as creating an archival record of their 2017 event. I don't think it's a word but I've coined the term 'photodocumentation".
The Auckland Easter Show is very long running, free to the public, fund raising event with upwards of 150,000 attending each year and for the most part run and managed by a large unpaid team of volunteers.
Unfortunately the first public day, Thursday, was the same day we were warned of being battered by Cyclone Cook and although nothing eventuated in Auckland the crowd that day was tiny in contrast to all other days.
Opened by the Auckland Mayor Phil Goff who also made a number of the craft and art awards.
I later heard him described as a "regular guy" and certainly one of the political figures in this country that I have plenty of respect for. Wiki
