A Fragment of Truth.

An on going landscape detail collection.

After studying the work of Eliot Porter and Edward Weston for a number of years and enjoying the calm meditative style of this work - both in the actual picture taking process but also in the observance of these pictures printed on the page. I began to wonder about concentrating the view down even further and looking at the natural world in segmented detail. Taking a fragment of what we have come to expect from New Zealand's highly pictorial frame, removing context and scale, distilling it into the very essence of its truth.
