Christchurch, Thursday NIght

Last Thursday evening I was in Christchurch walking to a German restaurant called Bismark, incidentallly, a restaurant I recommend, when Justin Paton, one of my companions, seeing me looking at this arrangement on an alley wall, said: ‘that looks like a Peter Peryer photo’.

He was right. This photo does look like a Peter Peryer photo but if you asked me why, I would have difficulty explaining it in words. Yet, Justin, in a few sentences would put his finger on it. Succintly, too I imagine.

The photo does remind me of an installation photo that took, about 5 years ago, of a work made by the collective, et al.
