New Zealand is without a doubt one of the most beautiful countries in the world. This perhaps might be why I was so overwhelming drawn to shooting the abandoned buildings and houses I came across whilst road tripping around the two islands. From decaying banks, to decrepit old furniture shops, they stood in stark contrast to their surroundings. By documenting the abandoned homes, I wanted to highlight the struggles of once thriving towns. An eyesore to some, an important part of the county's journey and history to others.
