Pakiri to Matakana

This was the mid winter group exhibition at Matakana Gallery and Design.

Artist's Statement

Our rural environment is changing: subdivisions are springing up, villages are being redeveloped and roads are being sealed.

My main photographic project in the last couple of years has been to capture the changing roads of my area around Leigh.

I am looking at places we rush past en route to daily destinations, recording our surroundings as they change – for one day, many of these scenes will exist only in memory.
