Peter's World

"Life On Pitt"

"This stunning bay is called Flowerpot (named after a rock that used to be here, that resembled a flowerpot) & it's very much the hub of life on on this remote outpost. Measuring 65 sq. km off the south coast of Chatham, just 45 people live on Pitt, mostly farming & fishing, plus a little tourism.  It really is a jewel in N.Z's crown & it made a huge impression with me. So if you ever get the chance to visit, don't hesitate! With an incredible coastline, unique geology & plant life, there is much to discover."

“When Peter delivered our pieces, we couldn't believe the incredible detail. The images on his website - impressive as they are - really didn't do our prints justice!“
