from Kiingitanga and corporates
Heavyweight bidders have been manoeuvring behind the scenes ahead of Saturday's charity auction of more than 100 examples of New Zealand's finest photo-journalism.
Major corporates and even representatives of the Kiingitanga have made approaches about the images - many of iconic moments in the history of Aotearoa.
The Photojournalism New Zealand Charity Auction is the brainchild of former New Zealand Herald picture editor Rob Tucker, who has terminal cancer.
Dismayed at the funding crisis the Taranaki Hospice faced, he called for help from the "brotherhood of photojournalism".
