The title P.North doesn’t refer to a place in the purest sense of the word. Drawing on a series of photographs made in rural New Zealand and Australia chiefly during the 1980s and 1900s, Kathryn McCool’s debut book floats between decades, locations, people, and the less palpable dynamics between them.
