Niamh Peren on taking pragmatism to Parliament
Filmmaker and photographer Niamh Peren is 29 years old. Her tūrangawaewae is the south-west of the South Island, and she grew up around open spaces and lots of sheep. Her favourite bird is the almost mythical New Zealand pigeon, the kererū. When I spoke to her, she was about to drive down to see her grandmother in the Bay of Plenty after completing a series of interviews in Auckland. She isn’t running for office and doesn’t particularly want to be famous.
