"Overall, Macpherson’s regard is contemplative, whether observing a barbered and manicured bowling green in Winton, a totem pole in lollipop colours on a hilltop between Opotiki and Ohope in the Bay of Plenty, or a gaggle of fairy-tale chalets in Twizel collectively bearing the letters spelling the word MOTEL. People don’t figure much, except as an index of scale. It’s the character of places rather than the characters in places that she’s interested in, though there’s the obligatory mannequin peering out from a small-town window on to the main street, as if at something vanishing".
