Taking a niche approach to documenting New Zealand’s abundant natural beauty, photographer Akhil Suhas embarked on a six-month, 15,000km trip across the country after university, capturing its mountains, lakes, beaches and skies with one consistency throughout: the presence of Gandalf in each shot. Claiming that he needed a point of difference from the many photographers traversing New Zealand with their cameras, he spent two months tracking down the perfect costume — which pays tribute to the local landscapes’ featured in the Lord of the Rings movies — before hitting the road.
