'The contemporary and the historical are interwoven into layers like lush ferns on the deep forest floor. Portraits of the 19th century ancestors of modern New Zealanders are shown alongside their descendants, past lives brought to the present. They lived with the historic injustices that only now are being corrected….
...The cycle of life is ever-present, from seed to tree to fruit to rot and then seed again. The pacing of the images also tells a story, from forests and the sea to people, then to forest and sea again. The people are a part of the ever-renewing cycle of nature, where past is present.'
