I’m really starting to enjoy documenting spaces, buildings, forms along the Godley Coast this year and I’m appreciative of how capturing time and place is important in this quickly changing world more than ever. In Taylors (like Boulder Bay) there are multiple baches at beach level, that are mostly vacant and derelict post-earthquakes.
It’s quite an eerie feeling when you are alone. Images were shot with Fujifilm 400H and my stocks are severely low. I’ve got two rolls left and will be keeping it for the remainder of the shoots that I’ve got planted in this region. Once those rolls are gone, I guess that will be it for that stock, seeing as it is now discontinued.
I met a guy, Shaun who was diving for muscles and as we walked along the small sandy beach, I plucked up the courage and asked to capture his portrait. The result is not perfect I know, and in reflection I should have asked him to hold his diving goggles and snorkel for more context, but that beautiful larger format look really pops. It was shot at f3.5 on the Yashica635 and has such an interesting character at this aperture. It’s so dream like.
