The Bach

A ‘bach’ is the name for a New Zealand holiday home and most of them were built in the middle of the 20th Century. I love shooting them as they are all so visually distinct. Each one has an idiosyncratic appearance due to the lack of building regulations and because they were usually built by the occupants from whatever cheap materials they could find.  Many are now in prized locations but doomed to a slow decline as the authorities refuse plans to update or modernise them.
