Fault Lines

This ongoing project explores major fault lines in the earths crust. It began in my home town of Christchurch where earthquakes have become commonplace. There is an uneasy feeling throughout the area which is experiencing regular aftershocks. The city centre is still being rebuilt and large swathes of land around the river lay derelict and unable to be redeveloped. These double exposures seem peaceful and disconnected from reality but the overlapping of the ocean and geology is suggestive of the fragility of the land sitting on these fault lines.

Shot both from the air and ground level there are trips to Chile and California below with others planned.
