Mark Lincoln's Earthquake Photographs

Photographs of the earthquake damage around Christchurch, taken by Mark Lincoln. The photographer comments "Unfortunately not all of the photographs are particularly professional! Most of the time I was using a ... point and shoot which I actually ended up filling with silt - another casualty of the quake! I was also using a smaller photo size for a lot of the early photos as I had no power at home so couldn't transfer the photos off the SD card."

Large piles of liquefaction silt at a dump on Breezes Road. One of the piles is covered with black plastic and weighted down with tyres. Trucks and diggers are adding more silt to the piles. The photographer comments, "Breezes Road and Anzac Drive have recently opened but are now home to a brand new range of hills thanks to mountains of silt that have been collected by the hard working construction guys that have done a sterling job on the road there".

Shoppers and tourists in the Re:Start mall. The photographer comments, "The new temporary city mall has been open in Christchurch now for a week. Buildings damaged in the earthquake have been demolished and replaced with cargo containers to create a new, temporary, Cashel Mall. I visited the mall yesterday and was quite impressed with what they have done. The cargo containers have been nicely converted, brightly painted and smartly branded to create some good looking stores".
