MĀNGERE TOWN CENTRE PORTRAITS 

Māngere Town Centre Portraits is a continuation of Vinesh Kumaran’s photographic series documenting dairy shop owners in the Auckland region. His interest is grounded in the experience of working in his family’s dairy in Māngere Bridge during his formative years, and his passion for making powerful portraits of ordinary people. 

As a local, Vinesh is interested in the people and stories behind Māngere Town Centre’s iconic shops and its reputation as a ‘Pacific shopping destination’. Vinesh will be working closely with the Māngere Town Centre Business Association to produce a series of portraits which will be shown in an exhibition at Māngere Arts Centre in early 2019.
