Albert Town, near Wanaka, South Island, New Zealand

I showed 11 pictures to 6 residents of Albert Town to get their feedback, and to learn more about Albert Town than I might otherwise in in-depth interviews.

I chose the 11 images for various reasons. Each picture has a brief caption and some comments about it from Albert Town residents.
