Towards the Pier is an ongoing series of photographs begun in 2011. The majority of the photographs are taken between 8-9am & 2-3pm, looking north towards the pier at New Brighton, Christchurch, New Zealand. The shots are taken quickly on a phone and compiled with minimal processing in the order they have been taken.
