David Parkyn & Tony Fomison at the Acacia Bay carvings, Lake Taupo, 1981 . We travelled down from Rotorua where we had been at an art opening party. Tony Fomison had just been for a swim with Brian Potiki and was keeping himself warm under his coat. The massive carvings, done by Greg Matatiwi-Brightwell and Jono Randell and others, were completed on a PEP scheme for the unemployed where payment was not much more than ‘the dole’. The carvings are now a huge tourist attraction and their humble beginning are forgotten. New Zealand.  REAL PEOPLE.  (Photo by Sally Griffin/ real-people.co.nz)
