In addition, Peter has worked co-producing ADP WRKSHP, an annual workshop that brings photographers from across the country together to showcase and discuss their work. In 2013, Peter was selected for Art Director’s Club Young Guns 11. Today we share his series, Again and Again. Today we take a look at his series titled, Again and Again.
Again and Again
Again and Again wanders through the neighborhoods and encounters the people of Christchurch, New Zealand in 2012, while the area is still encountering near daily tremors after a significant earthquake and severe aftershocks destroyed much of the central city and numerous homes in the coastal suburbs. The project is a study that was born out of my desire to explore the impermanence of place and how we cope with constant change. Christchurch is well known by its nickname, “The Garden City.”
