Christchurch, New Zealand #earthquake


Photographs from around Christchurch, one month after the earthquake of February 2011. The city was still closed and the perimeter guarded by the military. The only people around were those taking photographs of the devastation. It was a very unsettling experience to witness, but there also felt a strong sense of strength from the community members we spoke with. We were not sure how it would feel to be a 'tourist' passing through, but were told by numerous locals that they were really pleased we came, as most people have decided to avoid their city.
