New Zealand photojournalist Bruce Connew is the author of Stopover, a book of dutones documenting the Indian-Fijian sugar cane settlement of Vatiyaka and one extended family’s story of migration. Connew discussed his latest project in an interview with New Zealand’s Sunday Star-Times. Read the interview here.
Stopover is published and distributed outside New Zealand by University of Hawai‘i Press.
