We live in a post-natural world. To have a tactile and first-hand experience of a place is to be human. The camera has provided a window to the beauty of a stand of kahikatea trees. They survive in small isolated stands as indigenous trees without a media profile. Installation, paintings, and photography acknowledge the mana of these 'cathedral' trees.
