The Layers of the Land

Work in progress.

The Layers of the Land considers six key elements that make up the socio-economic climate of the Westport area –  coal (and gold) mining, cement production, rail, physical place and history, climate/politics, and people. 

Drawing on an archive that includes photography from 2014-2017 working alongside KiwiRail, Solid Energy and Holcim, I am producing a series of books which together form an ‘area-study’ of the Buller region.
