Anita Tótha - The weather was ideal
NEW ZEALAND PHOTOGRAPHY CURATED BY
CHRISTINE MCFETRIDGE AND TALIA SMITH
The desolation and vastness of this ever-changing sculptural landscape creates a surreal, otherworldly environment to experience where nature takes over. Footprint trails erased, no trace left behind. The hostility of the elements forever transforms the terrain within hours, making it appear devoid of all human interaction.
The images taken in New Zealand (arguably the final frontier of the world) is where uncharted, unexplored territory still exists. Upon their arrival centuries ago, Maori and European colonisers have adapted to some of these foreign and unforgiving landscapes created by the Earth, on volcanoes, glacial lakes and geo-thermal areas, making what was first perceived as foreign and remote, familiar, by adapting to their 'new world' and surroundings.
Anita is currently based in Auckland, New Zealand and is co-founder of Tangent, a New Zealand contemporary photography collective. She runs the Auckland branch of The Photobook Club and is on the advisory panel of the Asia Pacific Photobook Archive.
