Herbert Guthrie-Smith at Tutira

Herbert Guthrie-Smith was photographed at his Hawke's Bay sheep station, Tutira, in 1930. He identified passionately with Tutira, the subject of his famous environmental study, writing 'some spots on earth ... inspire in their owners a very special affection ... an occult sympathy betwixt the elementals of the soil and those who touch its surface with their feet.'
