Senior Research Fellow Dr Nina Dickerhof from the Centre for Free Radical Research has received a notable entry placing in the 2019 Otago Bulletin Page Photo Competition.
“This photo shows my partner reaching the summit of a remote mountain in New Zealand's South Westland shortly before sunset. I was hoping to capture the sense of freedom, achievement and contentment that comes with reaching one's goal – symbolised here by reaching the end of a line of footsteps and looking down on a sea of cloud we had to ascend through.
“I use photography to capture and share my deep connection with the New Zealand outdoors. Photography enables me to be present in the moment and to be mindful of the environment and its charms. I am passionate about New Zealand's wild places and how we protect them in order to preserve opportunities for future generations to experience wilderness.”
Over the past seven years, a number of Department of Pathology and Biomedical Science staff and students have placed in the competition including Dr Emma Spencer, Alice Milnes, and Dr Aaron Stevens.
