About the Work
“I visited Kai Iwi beach recently, and while there I was trying to work out how to make an image.
A good foreground rock solved my problem! So to find this image by Denton, employing a similar rock some 90 years earlier was a lovely discovery. The moonlight presents the landscape in such a wonderful tone.” – Solomon Mortimer, ‘My Choice’ November 2021
