Haruhiko Sameshima, a full time artist and freelance photographer based in Auckland, has exhibited widely in solo and group shows throughout New Zealand since 1982. His photographic practice focuses on the idea of tourism and tourist sites as expressions of identity where the packaging of environment – such as architecture, museum displays, man-made landscapes and advertising billboards – are a principal focus.
