Field notes : Manawa, NZ Mangrove

documentary heritage
  • Other Name

    Mangrove book (Alternate title)

  • Description

    The Manawa-Mangrove book is Toni Hartill’s response to the discovery of her grandfather’s notebooks (he was a surveyor in the early twentieth century) in which he sketched plants, wrote poems and made field notes. It mimics a botanist’s sketches of one of Auckland’s iconic coastal plants. A plant that is either reviled as a harbinger of and contributor to sedimentation or hailed as a nursery for fish and other sea life.
