About Derek HENDERSON
New Zealand-born, Sydney-based photographer Derek Henderson grew up on New Zealand’s North Island, near Hawke's Bay. By the time he’d reached his twenties, a curiosity in people and other places had inspired Derek to explore the world, with his creativity taking him to Australia, France, Munich, Copenhagen, London, New York and Los Angeles. During these creative travels he has shot for Vogue, i-D, RUSSH, Harper’s BAZAAR and Purple magazines, and many more. Derek is also renowned for his fine art photography and has released several books devoted to capturing natural beauty. Currently residing in Sydney, Derek returns to Aotearoa frequently to top up on inspiration by connecting with the land and the community. For our Aotearoa Country Special, we chat with Derek about life spent traveling, the pull of home shores, and the inside Travel Gems he recommends visiting on the South Island.
