About the Work
I distinctly recall the first time I came across this particular Ratana Church, perched on a hill between Raetihi and Ohakune. I found it sensational and truthfully couldn’t believe my eyes, climbing out of my vehicle and gazing for a long period of time. To this day I’m still captivated by the building and its placement on that hill: the architecture, the hill and the sense of isolation.
