NZIPP Veteran Portrait Project

The photos provided in the below Online Cenotaph records are displayed courtesy of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP). These photographs were part of a voluntary project undertaken by NZIPP members between 2014-2017, with the aim of photographing all known, surviving WWII veterans. Over 100 photographers photographed over 2000 veterans in studios, rest homes and RSA’s throughout the length of New Zealand. This taonga is shared here with you, for personal reference, using the Creative Common licence CC-BY-NC-ND 4.0.

You can read more about the project here and view the additional images of those personnel who are not eligible for inclusion on Online Cenotaph on the NZIPP website.
