We live a simple life in rural New Zealand, my children are alternatively educated and
live without TV or modern electronic devises, a lifestyle that may seem unconventional to
some, but I am here to celebrate the magical place I choose to live with my family.
I document their days, together, in an environment full of nature and uninhibited play. I
photograph as physical record of their childhood, life as it is… the real …but also as a
reflection of a childhood rooted deep in my own past …a most sincere place of freedom.. a
childhood I now pass on to my own children.
I believe my children are right where they belong covered in mud , running and living
through nature.
They belong here wild and free and earth connected in a way where the landscape begins and
their little souls end.
