The dirty laundry collection was the first collection I ever publicly released. My Idea was to challenge our "Mainstream media" or pakeha media and their content which always seemed to demonise our maori people and show negative steriotypes that surround our people.
Many of these prints are not for sale anymore as I feel they have done what I set out to do which is to bring more awareness to these issues which included drug and prison rates, homelessness and alcoholism.
The main whakaaro was to think about how our tipuna would of thought of these steriotypes or issues that surround our people in this time as before we were colonised none of these issues would of been a part of our day to day lives.
The Tame iti vs Osama print became one of the more popular pieces of this collection. This one looks at the media again and how it turned Tame in to some type of terrorist figure to the rest of the new zealand audience. (sound familiar ? tuhoe ? rua ? 100 years later) It was the police who really terrorised a community, who went tu far he spent tu much time in jail and tuhoe will never forget it.
