Artist’s statement -

The digital revolution has opened many intriguing avenues for photographers, promoting new ways of seeing the previously unachievable. Technology has surpassed the sensitivity of conventional film products, producing never before seen low light condition images.

This work is an example of what is possible.

I believe this new medium compliments the conversation with my subject matter of ‘Three Kings’, New Zealand’s suburban dwellings - and describes the content with expressive colour and beauty.

The body of work consists of 30 (+30) images taken in Three Kings, a small Auckland suburb some 10 minutes drive from the CBD. It depicts a quieter Auckland where tall fences don’t exist, great grassy lawns reign, the bach-like architecture is prolific, and an older sense of place is tucked away.
