About the Work
"Peter Peryer is my favourite photographer and will always hold a special place in my heart, but I'm also loving some of the new photographers who are emerging now.
We used to have an old boat like this one that we all learned to ski behind. We would launch it from the landing at Te Uku near Raglan, just below our farm. After we sold the farm and took the boat to Auckland, Dad gave it to a builder who used it for fishing. I imagine it ended up sitting somewhere like this."
- Niki Vernon, ‘My Choice’ March 2023
