Subtitled "The Pursuit of Life", this book is a monograph of 1980s Maoridom. The photographs are in black and white. There is, therefore, a richness and a sadness that would be missed if they were in colour. I wonder what sort of a gut feeling I would have got if the subjects in each case were white New Zealanders. This lot are gut-wrenching for me. ( )

She initially studied to be an art teacher and educator. Her efforts earned her the nickname as the "mother" of the Kura Kaupapa Māori, or Maori immersion schools, according to Doctor Pita Sharples. Mataira died on 16 July 2011, in Hamilton, at the age of 78. Her tangi, or Māori funeral, was at the Ohinewaiapu Marae in Rangitukia.

Photographer Ans Westra has worked amongst Maori people. She attended formal occasions, visited people in the country, travelled to Waitangi, and photographed on the streets of vrious cities. This selection, beginning with photographs of young children and finishing with kaumatua or elders, represents the best of her work. Accompanying words by writer Katarina Mataira use both Maori and English to set the photograph in context. The Ans Westra legacy, has, so far, spanned the tumultuous period 1957 to 1985, and the grown of the Maori as a nation.
