9780994104144: New Zealand Photography Collected

New Zealand Photography Collected illuminates the richness of New Zealand’s photographic tradition, from nineteenth-century portraits and dramatic landscapes to the latest contemporary art photography. The book showcases more than 400 arresting and memorable photographs from the collection of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, accompanied by richly informative descriptions. Featured photographers include James Bragge, Leslie Adkin, Burton Brothers, John Pascoe, Brian Brake, Frank Hofmann, Ans Westra, Eric Lee-Johnson, Marti Friedlander, Laurence Aberhart, Ann Shelton, Glenn Jowitt, Anne Noble, Yvonne Todd and many others. Author Athol McCredie offers a fresh and compelling narrative that foregrounds photography's wide-ranging uses across portraiture, landscape, science, documentary photography, and art, and contemplates photography’s wide-ranging uses and how it has been collected – both privately and publicly – through time. What emerges is not only an important new history of the photographic medium but also a surprising and powerful portrait of New Zealand.
