Reconnections

Reconnections refers to my leaving Wellington in the early 1970s for Australia  and then returning around 2013 after a 40 year absence.

I moved  away from New Zealand because I found it to be  too closed, inward looking and oppressive.  The  long period of absence from New Zealand was marked by grieving and  loss whilst I  made my home in Adelaide, Australia.   I  then returned to reconnect with my homeland and  to make photographs in Wellington and a volatile  nature in the Anthropocene.

Reconnections is in 3 parts: darkness, space  and  light. The skeleton of the project–the 9 images below–  has been developed in a Tumblr blog: Reconnections: Walking Wellington 2018.  The  narrative  starts at the bottom of this page.  The next step is to convert the text and images in the Tumblr blog into a pdf and then into a photo book.
