WOMAD TARANAKI PHOTO ESSAY (2018): The world of music, arts and images

Because a Womad festival is about different people, faces, costumes and art from around the world, it is a colourful event and lends itself to a simple photo essay to give the flavour of the three day event.

We don't claim these images to be professional, glossy, ripe for framing or any such thing.

But we hope they can convey something of the artists in performance and the people who were there to enjoy them . . . and themselves.

For interviews with artists at Womad 2018 start here. For a review of the 2018 festival in Taranaki go here.
