‘Waiuta Model Village’ is a series of photographic images depicting ‘Little Earth’, a model village in the West Coast region of New Zealand, which is a replica of a local town, Waiuta. Waiuta was a thriving gold mine town until the mine closed in 1951; it was largely abandoned soon after. Initially built as a replica of Waiuta in its heyday, ‘Little Earth’ has now fallen into disrepair and has become a ghost town model of a real ghost town, and has since been closed to the public.
