The Arts Te Papa website will be shutting down soon, but head to Collections Online to find your favourite works from New Zealand’s national art collection.

Taking a photograph involves peering through a device at the world. Such a deliberate act makes photographers very aware of the business of looking and the issues it raises.
Te Papa’s international photography collection includes works that show photographers themselves looking at looking. They are either literally looking at people looking, or taking photographs that highlight the nature of looking.
