Who are the people that make up Palmerston North? After a decade of living here, I started to ask, do I really know? How could I show the diverse mixture of people that live, are passing through, coming back to Palmerston North, after years of being away?

Over a period of twelve months, at Random, I would sit at the same location each weekend, depending on the weather, and ask people if I could take there Portrait. I was able to observe a diverse range of people, more diverse than I previously thought , but more importantly, listen to their stories.
