Place in time

The Christchurch Documentary Project

Contents

Adaptation

  • Tim J. Veling

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

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 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.

My Place

  • Tim J. Veling
  • Glenn Busch
  • Hanne Johnsen
  • Uiga Bashford
  • Bruce Connew
  • Maria Buhrkuhl
  • Dean Kozanic

Think about it: What's a place of significance to you? What makes one place more important to you than another? What's your connection with this place and what is it that continues to make it important in your life today?

These are the Days

  • Ib Glover
  • Tim J. Veling

These are the Days is a story conveyed with photographs and text about a family dealing with grief and illness after Ib Glover’s diagnosis with breast cancer.

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.

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.

Donʼt See You Round Much Anymore

  • Danny Bare

A body of work about a stretch of Stanmore Road and the community that photographer Danny Bare called home.

Orientation

  • Tim J. Veling

Made in response to the Christchurch earthquake of February 22nd 2011, Orientation is a body of work conceived to be seen primarily within the context of an artist book.

Thx 4 the Memories

  • Tim J. Veling
