Niki Boon

2017 Guest Judge



I am a previously trained physiotherapist turned photographer and mother of four wild and free children living in Marlborough, New Zealand.

My current project was born from the desire to document my family’s days as we pursue an alternative education and lifestyle with our children in our rural environment.

My work has been published in publications including F11 Magazine, Fraction Magazine, National Geographic online, Blur magazine, ProPhotographer magazine. As well as being featured in joint international exhibitions, I have also gained recognition in several international competitions, most recently, finalist selection at LensCulture Exposure Awards, winner editorial and people sections of IPA awards.

The Documentary Family Awards is an international competition in search of the insightful and meaningful ways that documentary photographers explore the interpretation of family.
