Crystal Brindle

I am here to write, photograph, and share the story of the land.

As a photographer, I seek to capture challenging, hard-to-reach landscapes as a way of connecting the human spirit with the whenua: mainly national parks and other conservation land in the South Island of New Zealand. What goes into creating a photo is as important as what comes out the other side. I hope that my photos and writing contribute to a body of proof that protected landscapes have a place in the human experience solely for their intrinsic worth.
