Landscape-told Stories

BY JANET STEPHENSON
@ VOL 20 ON NOV 14, 2013

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.

"Presentation of the Day" on January 16, 2014.
