Trump

This picture was made in March 2018 when  I was walking Wellington, New Zealand,  for a week or so whilst Suzanne was hiking the Grand Traverse in Fiordland over six days. 

The photo was made  just prior to my return trip to Wellington in order to  attend the Photobook/NZ event. At the time I was staying in an Airbnb in the Te Aro Valley whilst I photographed in  Wellington,  and I would walk past the small group of shops in the Te Aro Valley to get to the CBD. 

This poster/flag--I couldn't  tell which from the street -- was in the window of a house  in the main street of Te Aro Valley. I have to admit being rather surprised, puzzled, then taken back to see this support for Trump  in this part of Wellington. 

Cuba St, Wellington

This picture was made in March 2018 when  I was walking Wellington in New Zealand for a week or so. This was  just prior to my return to Wellington to  attend Photobook/NZ:

Like everyone else I hung out in Cuba St, often  for a number of hours. I would usually walk up and down the street each time I wandered down  to the CBD or the waterfront from the Air BnB studio apartment in Te Aro Valley.  It was one of the more interesting streets in Wellington. 

logs

 Another picture of logs that had been washed up on the beach at the mouth of the Whakatane River at Whakatane in  the  Bay of Plenty in the North Island of New Zealand. We were on a weeks holiday in the North Island at the time. 

The picture  was made in the early morning light:

Cyclone Hola had  gone through the upper part of the North Island bringing gales  and rain in March 2018.  The Whakatane River  was still swollen when we were there,   and  a lot of trees, branches and debris had been dumped on the bank  by the mouth of the river.

Mallee Country

This was made whilst I was on a photocamp at Morgan in South Australia's Riverland  in November.  The camp was for  the Mallee Routes project and I was there with Gilbert Roe, a fellow collaborator on the project.    


I was travelling on the Sturt Highway  to Moorook to photograph dead trees on the edge of the River Murray.  I needed to build  up work for the forthcoming Mallee Routes exhibition at the Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery in March, 2018.
