Tussock - Bruce Hunt
“Tussock is the colour of my country. It is, for me, a coming home.”
Over the course of nearly 40 years, artist Bruce Hunt has explored the ridgelines, hills and valleys of Otago and Canterbury, photographing the quiet grandeur of undulating foothills, observing braided rivers growing and gathering momentum.
His deep connection to the land, and topographically accurate photographs reveal a landscape untouched in places, in all its variable moods.
With a foreword by Sir Alan Mark, Emeritus Professor at University of Otago, Tussock is an homage to an ecology and landscape that is distinctly Aotearoa New Zealand.
