Ta moko is the traditional art of Māori tattooing, initially pertained only to the face, legs and buttocks. Contemporary ta moko has expanded its borders to incorporate one’s arms, chest and back - most likely due to the stigma that being tattooed has in modern society. However, in Read more...

Speed Photography with a Storm Chaser

Posted 11:31am Sunday 13th August 2017 by Critic

Trevor started out as a storm chaser - someone who, when they hear a tornado is approaching, runs towards it rather than away. “I probably really started getting into it when I was 15-16. I started chasing with my mom – she would drive me around. It was so fantastic. I was up in Read more...

A Wander through the Dunedin Night

Posted 12:16pm Sunday 6th August 2017 by Charlie O’Mannin

Flatting in Hell: Abuse in Student Homes

Posted 11:58am Sunday 6th August 2017 by Kirio Birks

“[My flatmates] threw away my dead sister’s necklace.” For Ava* that was normal; her normal. The same was true of her flatmate Beth*. They shared a world in which their house was not a home, not a sanctuary from the outside world, not even a place to eat, shower, or sleep. Both Ava Read more...
