New Zealand is a beautiful place. You can be in a city one moment, take a half an hour drive and you are in the country or the rain forest (the type you would expect to see a dinosaur to step out of). Surfing off the west coast of New Zealand, just a short drive from Auckland
Maori Bay (North Island), is one of those places. A fairly short drive west from Auckland towards Muriwai brings you to this beach enclosed by cliffs, black volcanic sand and with it’s own sea bird colony.
I hear the water is a little cold (as usual in NZ), but the waves were good (when we were there), and it seems to be a favourite spot for the locals. You just need to walk down a little goat track to get to the beach but it is well worth it.

It can be said that photography is more than just a click on the camera, it makes the moments, people and emotions live forever. This was confirmed to us by an exceptional Dutch photographer Ferry Verheij, whose photographs represent stories of all those people and places he had a chance to know.
Photographer Daniel Zvereff makes work around the world, following poetic inspirations such as literature, history, or the seductive lure of a place unknown. In this LomoAmigo feature, see through his eyes on the exciting streets of Cartegena, Colombia.
This young artist has drawn our attention with breathtaking photographs which give colour to the life around us. He has managed to show a perfect blend of nature and its harmony with people. His portraits tell stories of young people around him and different places he visited.
