For more than three decades she was a prolific photographer capturing thousands of images from quiet domestic moments, portraits, street scenes, protests and Māori communities.
In partnership with Tauranga City Libraries and the whanau of Kapua Joy Bennett.
Mātiro is one of three exhibitions, and an art education programme, that forms the Tauranga Art Gallery's 2019 Matariki celebrations for Maori New Year.
