CHRISTCHURCH : THE OVERFLOW

The Amazing Place project for kids

Lola : The Amazing Place project for kids designing the future

Unusually …. there is an quite overflow of photographs from our visit to Christchurch. Some of them are really great (even if we do say so ourselves) and yet there seems to be no place to put them. These pics focus on those decisive moments outside SCAPE that represent our own impressions while also reflecting upon the current context in which SCAPE takes place. They are mostly Nat images that come from wandering the streets, day and night, meeting people and stumbling across the strange, the amusing, the sad and the dramatic changes brought about by the earthquake.
