Allan McDonald photographs familiar aspects of urban environments that may not be around for much longer. After the Christchurch earthquakes our cities and towns are scrutinizing their architectural stock and assessing stability. Given the economics of preserving older architecture, it is increasingly likely that a wave of demolitions will reduce the historical character of many of these places.

The photographs in Walking in the City are a small selection from a large photographic archive of earthquake prone buildings nationwide that McDonald continues to add to. The interest lies not only in the urban fabric depicted but the subtle and altering ways McDonald pictures it.
