Footpath Productions are proud to have been involved in this great Loading Docs project by Louise Pattinson of Liminal Pictures with the help of Taaniko and Vienna Nordstrom and Soldiers Road Portraits.
Soldiers Road Portraits seeks to reframe identity in an empowering way by connecting young Māori to their culture through art. The brainchild of Taaniko & Vienna they use writing, photography, and Maoritanga (a way of life through culture & tradition) to create stunning portraits to demonstrate how looking into the past can enrich the future. This Soldiers Road is about a group of young Maori at a crossroads. Kicked out of school and with many of their whanau (family) behind bars, Soldiers Road Portraits wants to help these youths reframe how they see themselves and their future.
