The Christchurch Documentary Project

Contents

Transitional Landscapes

  • Mitchell Bright

A body of work about Selwyn, one of the fastest growing districts in the country, both in terms of commercial and residential development.

Rewilding

  • Tim J. Veling

A body of work that follows on from Thx 4 the Memories and Vestiges, documenting Christchurch's red zoned suburb of Avonside.

Support Structures

  • Tim J. Veling

This small portfolio of photographs, made between odd jobs on the way to and from work, is a metaphorical tribute to the people that helped keep Tim Veling upright following the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010 and 2011.

The Winter Garden

  • Christine McFetridge

Examining relationships with immediate family, close friends and the natural landscape, the Winter Garden negotiates the complexity in reconciling Christchurch as the place McFetridge grew up in and an earthquake affected city.

D,P,O

  • Tim J. Veling

An intimate and moving account of the last months of a man's life, and the close relationship he shared with his loving family.

Bloodlines

  • Arabella Spoors

Bloodlines​ documents places of cultural and historical significance associated with Ngāi Tahu Māori and uses photography as a means of retracing the footsteps of Arabella's ancestors.

Adaptation

  • Tim J. Veling

An ongoing project documenting the sometimes surreal and often disorientating environment that is Christchurch’s post-earthquake central business district.

Vestiges

  • Tim J. Veling

The images in this gallery form a representative selection from Vestiges, Tim J. Veling’s ongoing body of work documenting post-earthquake change in the red zoned suburb of Avonside, Christchurch.

The Cardboard Cathedral

  • Bridgit Anderson

The Cardboard Cathedral project captured the imagination of many, nationally and internationally. The building slowly rose, put together step by step, tube by tube, day by day – the handwork of those who believed in the idea.

Cathedral Square

  • Tim J. Veling

An ongoing body of work about Christchurch's rapidly changing Cathedral Square. A sample of images made to date.

Returnal

  • Tim J. Veling

To revisit time and again. Days, months and years – a decade already. To study sites from multiple vantage points, ponder the changing light and respond to shifts in weather and seasons. A work in progress drawn from my unwieldily archive.

Thx 4 the Memories

  • Tim J. Veling
  • Glenn Busch
  • Bridgit Anderson

As the devastating series of earthquakes that destroyed and subsequently closed off much of Christchurch city continued, residents in large areas of the badly affected eastern suburbs began for the first time to hear the words, Red Zone.
