To celebrate FishHead’s fifth birthday, current editor Dan Slevin selects his ten favourite photographs from the last five years
Portrait by Kane Feaver
Back in April 2010, publisher Jack Martin, business manager Richard Aindow and editor Ben Christie launched this publication with the intention of showcasing the very best that Wellington has to offer and telling the region’s stories with style, wit and invention.
From the very beginning of the magazine, we have showcased the talents of some brilliant photographers and continue to take great pride in the quality of the work we commission. I am continually astounded at the superb work our photographers deliver to us every month, elevating our words to new heights. These ten photographs made me gasp, made me laugh, or made me cry, and I hope you’ll join me in applauding the talent and vision that made them.
Of course, this is a personal selection — there were dozens of contenders and I hope you’ll get to see more of them when we celebrate our tenth birthday in April 2020.
