Description
The Whanganui River is a spiritual place for Anne Noble, who grew up on its banks. In 1982 she made a photographic journey up the river, she says of it 'In the morning the mist rises off the river, and from a hilltop above the valley I see a long snake of mist floating in the river's path, that stretches as far as the eye can see. The Wanganui; a healing river of sacred springs and potent secrets. I came out of the Place as the Spring from its Source. I made a journey to claim this river. I feel its currents curling around my bones.'
