Tawharanui Coastal Edge

Tawharanui Coastal Edge

Much like many of us who are stuck on these far flung islands I have a fascination with our coastal edge. The attached photo “Tawharanui Coastal Edge” depicts a group of young snorkelers experiencing the Tawharanui Marine Reserve.

Balmoral Forest

Balmoral Forest

The photo shows soil blowing off recently cleared forest land at Balmoral in North Canterbury that is being converted to dairy farming by Ngai Tahu. This photo is obscene at many levels.

we were camping on the edge of a ridgeline 4000m asl in the Kaimanawa ranges, pegged into permafrost ground. Sadly, i have no high res images to send as my laptop was stolen a few years ago with 6 years of work photos going too.

My photo is a reminder that we can build all the tall towers we like but that everything is ultimately temporary. Here you can see part of a tree fallen from the eroding cliff-face of Mission Bay with Auckland City in the background.

Edges

Human activity creates edges through development and agriculture. In this case, the recreational activity divides the landscape and leaves an explicit edge effect on the terrain.

What is it's potential?

What is it's potential?

This represents landscape at the edge of an urban space. It is part of a busy high street in Glen Innes yet it is abandoned. It has been many things, a green field, a house and home, a shop, a waste-space. What else could it be, what is it's potential?

Lease Expired

Lease Expired

This landscape sits on the edge between the old and new, modern and traditional, sacred and profane. 'Lease expired' seemed a prophetic sign given its place next to an ancient pa site.

Between Us

Between Us

The photograph depicts the edge between the sea and the land after dawn. Standing in between the vast flowing fabric of the sea and the dark soft land, are two humans. The juxtaposition questions the perception of scale, softness, and our existence.

Reaching for the Sky

Reaching for the Sky

Being physically on the edge parallel to our very own Auckland Sky Tower, it is prominent that urban built environments are constantly 'reaching for the sky', but rare for humans to break out of their comfort zone and challenge themselves.

Metaphorical Edge

Metaphorical Edge

Displays the contrast between water and land; the horizon forms an edge. The birds which would usually be soaring in the skies are resting on land, creating a metaphorical edge.

Blue Springs

Blue Springs

A small stream in the Blue Springs in Putaruru, this shows the edge between water and land, yet illustrates the integration of the water flowing over and around the rocks. The contrast of dynamic flow of the water to static plants also creates an edge.

This photo was taken after Cyclone Cook on the coastline roads of Kawakawa. We were literally on the edge, with some parts of the road completely taken away by the storm. After all we had witnessed, behind us was this view - a true landscape at the edge.
