Here is a series of portraits of players in the Christchurch earthquake recovery scene. They were taken on assignment for The Australian Newspaper weekend magazine and completed in time for the 3 year anniversary of the February 22 earthquake. I believe the paper have used an image of Ann Brower as the feature image. Hers is a great story of recovery and hope after being pulled from the wreckage of a bus that was crushed by the rubble from an unreinforced brick building.
The photos were all taken with prime lenses and mostly in existing light. A small LED panel light was used in a couple of the interiors to highlight the faces.
It was a pleasure to work with reporter Brendan Nicholson from The Australian who will have done a great job of finding the story I’m sure.
