Unseen Fiji in print
A new book by Wellington documentary photographer Bruce Connew featured in Time magazine’s Pacific edition. Stopover tells the story of Fiji’s Indian sugar-cane workers – the country’s “unseen underclass” – in stunning black and white images. After Fiji’s first ethnic Indian prime minister, Mahendra Chaudhry, was deposed in 2000, Connew began making regular trips to the country’s sugar district, documenting the day-to-day lives of its inhabitants. The 60 images from Stopover are on display at Porirua’s Pataka museum and gallery until November 25.
