New Zealand Now - From Refugees to Kiwis

Photograph: "Every time I come to the ocean I feel close to home. It's one of the places I can come and lose my mind in it." Tazmine, former refugee.

Many people from refugee backgrounds have made New Zealand their home. Their past may be in another country, but their present and future is here.

New Zealand Now - From Refugees to Kiwis, by social documentary photographer and filmmaker Nando Azevedo, is about those people.

SeaCharger at the Maritime Museum

The New Zealand Maritime Museum is currently exhibiting SeaCharger - the world’s first unmanned surface vessel to cross an ocean using only solar power.

In 2016 the eight-foot-long, foam and fibreglass craft travelled from Half Moon Bay, California to Mahukona, Hawaii in 41 days on its maiden voyage – a distance of approximately 7081km.
