Photographer Chris Wilson took to New Zealand to capture scenic unknown areas for a project that exposes the land's mysterious beauty that most never have the chance to encounter.

Chris Wilson wanted to document some of the country's more unknown areas after realizing that too many representations were taken of well-traveled tourist destinations. In addition to this, New Zealand worked as the perfect space to capture a vast variety of scenic shots due to the country's diverse environments, which can all be accessed within a few short hours of driving.

To begin the project, Chris Wilson started in Christchurch -- a city that was devastated by an earthquake back in 2011. He then traveled to an island that's known for receiving the most sunlight year-round in the country and continued on to the coastline, through stunning national parks and much more.
