Illustration for the Critic 18 feature “A Case For Animal Rights” by Lucy Hunter.

"It is easy to assume that “clean, green New Zealand” is a better place to be a farmed animal than in other country. But the hidden camera footage recently released by Farmwatch from three New Zealand pig farms is as bad as a nightmare or a horror movie. This is an eye-opening look at the state of affairs."

"In today’s society, in the Age of the Internet, becoming a hypochondriac is far easier than it once was. The condition, in combination with access to online information sources, has even garnered its own snazzy nickname – cyberchondria."

CENTRAL OTAGO, NZ

Black and white film processing has always provided ample opportunity to hangout in the dark, listen to good music and talk crazy talk with my friend Alex. However it is rare that my films these days make it past the processing stage and actually get printed or scanned. But I’m working on it, and here’s a couple of adventures from last year.
