Over four years New Zealand photographer travelled to the Far North of New Zealand documenting the lives of several families and community members in the area and their surrounding landscape . White says he was originally attracted to this project because of the area's past reputation as the most 'Maori' place in New Zealand - a mysteriously spiritual place with a reputation of "hopelessness". But after spending years meeting and entering the lives of local people and families, White discovered this 'truth' turned out to be anything but. "In fact , their life is uplifting and it made me question what is important in my life and what I need to be happy," says White.
