Christchurch Earthquake Photographer Gilly Needham releases print

Christchurch Earthquake Photo by Gilly Needham
Gillian (Gilly) Needham has this week released a print of her famous photograph taken of dust clouds across Christchurch at the moment of the Feb 22nd earthquake. Fashion designer Needham was at home in Cashmere when the earthquake struck.  Her camera was sitting on the kitchen bench and she grabbed it to capture the scene in the city below.   A few hours later a low-resolution photo was on Facebook and it quickly went around the world to become one of the most enduring images of the Christchurch earthquake.  A large panorama shaped print of the photograph has now been printed and is available exclusively from Christchurch art print specialists New Zealand Fine Prints.
