“What we memorialise reflects our values as a society, & typically monuments commemorate the wealthy, powerful, violence, & victimised. These photographs take the fading remnants of early New Zealand industry as inadvertent monuments, & through the wealth & power they represent, reflect on the ideology behind them, & the environmental or economic violence which are their consequences.”
