ATANGA – Beautiful New Zealand
Atanga = beauty, loveliness, splendour, prettiness (Maori)
I spent the most amazing seven months of my life in New Zealand, where I fell in love with the country’s natural beauty. As I traveled across both the north and south island, I tried to capture as much as I could of it on video. Vast landscapes, rugged mountains, glaciers, rough coastlines, idyllic beaches, dense forests, tumbling waterfalls, exotic wildlife and the vibrant city of Auckland… I combined all of my best shots into this: my audiovisual ode to New Zealand.
