Portraits and stories of hope as farmers in Vietnam and Cambodia embrace research and sustainability. By Wara Bullôt, who in 2019 became the first Kiwi in 5 years with work in the world’s longest-running photography exhibition, RPS 161. From This Land is her intimate look into the lives of farmers, advisors, researchers and others via 18 portraits, smaller images and video. Text by Phil Johnstone.
Wara: “This work explores people's lives and dreams as development reunites families, lifts income and improves the environment. It asks: if change can happen this quickly, what more is possible in the next decade?”

Artist Talk: 11am Sat 12 June
Wara Bullôt & Phil Johnstone share a talk about the work.
