EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a beautiful moment of affection and tradition among Maori girls in New Zealand, dating back to the 1920s. The image showcases two young indigenous females engaging in a customary greeting known as "rubbing noses". This intimate gesture symbolizes deep connection, respect, and friendship within the Maori culture. Dressed in their traditional costumes, these teenagers proudly represent their country's rich heritage. Their attire reflects the unique identity of Aotearoa (New Zealand) and adds an element of authenticity to this heartfelt scene. The monochrome aesthetic enhances the timeless quality of this photograph, allowing us to appreciate its historical significance. The photographer behind this remarkable piece remains unknown; however, it was featured in Walter Hutchinson's renowned publication titled "Story of the British Nation". Hutchinson's work aimed to showcase different cultures around the world during that era. As we gaze upon this print today, we are transported back in time to witness a genuine display of love and unity between Maori women. It serves as a reminder that traditions can transcend generations while preserving cultural values. This image is not only visually striking but also carries immense emotional weight as it immortalizes an integral part of Maori customs for future generations to cherish.
