Media release
For immediate release

A limited edition journal showcasing the work of two local artists will launch in Wellington this evening.

We are immortal is the collaboration between photographer Emma Anderson and writer Jenah Shaw, both recent graduates and young artists at the beginning of their careers. The book, which combines three short stories with a series of black and white photography, went to print with funding raised on PledgeMe – New Zealand’s first crowdfunding website.

The launch will be followed by a city-wide poster exhibition displaying imagery from the book. Supported by Phantom Billstickers Ltd, this very public exhibition will run for three weeks from mid-May.

We are immortal will launch at 7pm this evening, Friday 27 April, at Wellington’s The Russian Frost Farmers Gallery. The book will be available for purchase through the project’s website,, and stockists to be confirmed.
