Landscape-told Stories

PRESENTED ON NOV 14, 2013
IN DUNEDIN @ VOL 20

Janet Stephenson presents us with numerous idyllic photographs of the New Zealand tussock grasslands, and encourages us to question the subtle inconsistencies found within her photographs. She speaks specifically on the small creeks or "races" lining the hillsides, and at first inquires as to why they exist -- she then delves into the mysteries nature unveils.
