Born in England in 1959, Stu Sontier has lived in New Zealand since the age of eight.

After a break from years of darkroom and documentary work (shown in multiple group and solo exhibitions and as part of the book Ink and Silver), he now uses digital tools to explore the dynamic of living in an era of environmental and social uncertainty.
