48 Hours in Kaikoura – Photography Exhibition
August 5, 2017 - August 6, 2017
Few places, if any, in the world can equal the splendour of the natural wonders of Kaikoura. Majestic Kaikoura ranges descend into the Pacific Ocean with its wealth of abundant marine life. Kaikoura Township has dramatically changed and prospered in the past few years – driven mainly by the increase in international tourism since 1988. Progress is important but it must be well considered and with close attention to the history of the land and the needs of the people and the environment.
Started in 2002, the aim of the “48 hours in Kaikoura” exhibition was to have those who know and love Kaikoura best to capture its complexity, diversity and beauty on film. I wanted people to rediscover their environment, to give them the chance to dream a little, break out of their everyday routine, stretch the mind and muscle and open their eyes to the natural beauty that Kaikoura has to offer. The resulting collection of images celebrates their endeavours and commitment to this challenging assignment.
