Auckland is Burning is a homage to my hometown.
“There is a lot of beauty about Auckland, and there is a lot of decay. The negligence of our architectural heritage, the beauty and diversity of the people, the flora and fauna of Karangahape Rd. For the last 5 years I’ve taken my camera everywhere, and being a big customer of Auckland public transport I have had a LOT of time to just observe and watch. Auckland is Burning is really just a result of that. “
“A lot of people like the exotic and spend their time travelling the world and photographing. For me the exotic is right here in the streets and sights of Auckland city – so in a way it’s a homage to the city I was born in, grew up in – and love.” - Wallace
