Rob Tucker and the cream of NZ photojournalists to auction images for Taranaki Hospice | Local Focus published this video item, entitled “Rob Tucker and the cream of NZ photojournalists to auction images for Taranaki Hospice | Local Focus” – below is their description.

Photojournalist Rob Tucker once had a cleaner that asked to see some of his photos.

“On the top was this picture of this Māori gentleman. Diane started wailing, crying and touching the photo, and I thought, ‘Oh, what have I done? I’ve broken some protocol here’.

“She finally calmed down and she said, ‘Do you know who this man is? It’s my father, and he died last year and I haven’t got a picture of him’. I said ‘Diane, I’m giving him back to you’.”

Tucker talks about his career and what may be the last thing he does, organising a fundraising photography auction for Hospice Taranaki.
