New Zealand

Daniel Benson

Daniel journeyed to New Zealand, taking his camera in hand, he documented his adventure as he travelled the country.

In Daniel’s own words – ‘Bad weather had made Milford Sound only accessible by plane or coach convoy. On the way in we did the latter. Five hours sat on a coach with a largely older crowd, younger people seemingly put off with the loss of freedom of leaving their own camper vans behind in Queenstown. At the head of a valley, the road entered a tunnel. Inside there was nothing supporting it, it been held up by its own strength. A 2km man-made tunnel, a mere insignificance to the scale of the surroundings. The tunnel tipped the busses out halfway up a 2000m cirque.The scale seemed impossible – sublime and surreal to be this high up, in this place, in a coach.’
