Peter's World

"Wild Abandon"

"Tucked away in the north west corner of Chatham Island, this idyllic stone cottage was built by German missionaries around 1866-1868. Constructed from local stone & burnt pipi shells for the mortar, with akeake timber for the doors & window frames, it's a remarkable reminder of the past & how resourceful the early settlers really were. No longer lived in, it's garden is slowly returning to nature & on the afternoon I arrived, the westerly winds were really blowing, which added to the wild feel & sense of abandon."

“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!“
