Born 1964, Christchurch, New Zealand
Lives and works Ponsonby, New Zealand

Sara Tautuku Orme, (Ngāti Awa, Ngāti Tarawhai, Ngāti Whakaue) based in Aotearoa New Zealand, uncovers the daily life of human experience around her. The diversity in her personal life, referencing both feminism and bi-culturalism, forms the basis of her photographic practice. After completing a Sociology degree, majoring in Feminist studies & Ethnicity, she went on to study photography with a focus on research, documentary and portraiture.

Sara’s work is both an investigation of sociological landscapes of both herself and those around her. Her community, feminism and whanau continue to be central to her work.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
