Entry Description

The female members of Television New Zealand's 'Futurist' panel, Frances Valintine, Wendy McGuinness, and Sacha McMeeking. These internationally recognised leaders in technology, education, and innovation led a live televised and interactive discussion looking at what our lives might look like in 20 years. New Zealanders were asked to consider how the impact of technology, changing environment, and direction of the economy would define our future lifestyle in a television event called 'What Next?'.

About Photographer

Stephen Wells specialises in portraiture, both studio and within the landscape. He began his career in London shooting publicity campaigns for television and advertising. Recently he has returned to his native country of New Zealand. Stephen appreciates photography most when he finds technical and conceptual strength in equal measure, or when he finds that intangible weirdness that compels him to look again.
