"This photograph is part of the Moko suite that captures the whakapapa and art of moko as well as the lives of kuia in the early 1970s. The photographs were taken for the book Moko : Maori tattooing in the 20th Century, by Michael KING, published in 1972 by Alister TAYLOR, Wellington. The book was later republished by David BATERMAN in 1992."

"They were marvellous women and what I loved mostly was that I was able to photograph them in situ without arranging a formal portrait," she said. "Just as they were, wherever they were. (...) And the fact that they allowed me to, I thought, was an enormous privilege."
