The Faces of Towns

New Zealand has different climates in different regions. What is known to be micro-climates also creates different landscapes and town vibes. 

 

This part of the project comes to focus on special towns that for me, as the conductor of the project, stand out of the other towns. While choosing only one specific township in each region of the country is not an easy task, the project eventually made it based on the characteristics of the town, the people and the mood that the towns radiate. For every handpicked representative town, the project found a person to tell the story, their story, and their connection to the town. They are called "The Face Of The Town". Their stories are presented here in a series of portraits using the wonderful Tokina lenses.
