About the Work
Laurence Aberhart was the Sarjeant’s inaugural artist-in-residence in 1986 at Tylee Cottage and it was during that year that he began photographing Mount Taranaki from afar. This image is part of an ongoing investigation of the horizon line that is now known as his ‘last light’ series that has spanned over thirty years.
