Emma Badeia: On Saturdays We Play Rugby

On Saturdays We Play Rugby is an anthology of small town New Zealand as found on the East Cape of the North Island.
As policies to manage population growth move toward urban expansion, photographer Emma Badeia examines the more quaint communities that are vestiges of this drift.
The images reflect and celebrate a stoic snubbing of the metropolis (metropolitan opportunities) for an idyllic life of simple living. They also address the implications for New Zealand culture.
