Christchurch: A Nostalgic Tribute is a remarkable photographic record of a city now so drastically changed, after the 2010 & 2011 earthquakes. When recently sorting through his photographic library, photographer, Peter Morath, realised that he had a 'time capsule' of images, many of which were taken in the 1990's. They show his "much loved City of Christchurch" in a colourful, retrospective light. Firstly, there are some pictures showing the earthquakes' devastation. Secondly, the collection steps back several years, with beautiful photos of once familiar scenes. Thirdly, there are images of Christchurch and surrounding Canterbury destinations - showing places and picturesque scenes of the vibrant city and region that we all love.
