• Aotearoa A Photographer's Journey Around New Zealand
    Aotearoa A Photographer's Journey Around New Zealand
    Breath-taking landscapes, photos of dairies and local pubs, old buildings and rural scenes, a beach on a stormy day, a remote place in the bush or high country combine to portray a vivid portrait of the real New Zealand. Arranged not by area, but by theme and feeling, the photographs are Robin Morrison-esque, and break away from the traditional 'pretty' landscapes.

  • Frensham a New Zealand Garden
    Frensham a New Zealand Garden
    In this lavishly illustrated book, Canterbury gardener, Margaret Long, tells the fascinating story of Frensham, considered one of New Zealand’s finest gardens. As though we are right there with her, the reader is taken on a tour through the seasons, listening as we go to Margaret’s thoughts and insights about why this plant was placed here or that tree there, what is behind her choices not just of plantings but also structures, materials, colours. This very personal and yet informative perspective on thirty years of gardening with passion makes for a delightful book to be treasured and shared. Highly acclaimed garden photographer, Juliet Nicholas, has “lived” with Frensham for an entire year, photographing its changes through the months and the seasons and providing a unique insight into the growth and development of these beautiful gardens, as well as capturing one of the most frequently written comments in Frensham’s visitors’ book: ‘The garden is so peaceful’.

    I Am New Zealand Aotearoa Through Many Eyes
    What's your vision of New Zealand?

    An inner-city street in the rain, a campervan under a clear and starry night sky, a high-octane sport or a traffic jam of sheep? This book collects a range of personal views of Aotearoa from photographers, both amateur and professional, along with their thoughts on what makes New Zealand.

    When Nikon invited the photographic community to build an image map of the nation online (at iamnewzealand.co.nz) there was an amazing response and many creative and inspiring photographs were posted. This collection offers a range of those that truly say I AM NEW ZEALAND.

  • Landmarks
    Landmarks
    A handsome, landmark book celebrating the work of three of our literary and artistic heavyweights.

    The complementary work of artist Grahame Sydney, fiction writer Owen Marshall and poet Brian Turner was first brought together in the hugely successful Timeless Land in 1995. Its pages showed their shared, deep connection to Central Otago, to its vast skies, its wide plains punctuated by jagged ranges, its unique colours and its dwarfing effect on the people who pass through it. Twenty-five years later, this lavish new volume from these three long-time friends showcases a rich selection of their subsequent work, including recently written, previously unpublished pieces. Through their own marks about the land and its people, be it in ink or paint, they offer a love song to the South Island, in particular Central Otago.

  • Marae a Journey Around New Zealand's Meeting Houses
    Marae a Journey Around New Zealand's Meeting Houses
    A magnificent documentation of and tribute to New Zealand's wharenui, big and small. Bishop Muru Walters is a very well known Anglican minister. He is also a master carver, poet, broadcaster and former Maori All Black. His son Robin is a photographer and filmmaker who is director at Curious Films. Sam Walters, Robin's wife, is a photographer. Together the Walters spent three years visiting some of this country's major meeting houses as well as many of the more humble ones - houses that serve smaller hapu and iwi - to bring together a beautiful photographic book on the meeting house. They are intensively photographed, with detailed shots of their carvings, kowhaiwhai panels, tukutuku panels and much more. Many are photographed during an event, the images conveying a rich sense of life and activity. From north to south, from the east coast to the west, and from ancient wharenui to bold new designs, this handsome book, with its engaging personal text, captures the huge variety of New Zealand's original architecture. It's a book for all New Zealanders to treasure.

  • Moment and Memory Photographs from the New Zealand Landscape
    Moment and Memory Photographs from the New Zealand Landscape
    Craig Potton rose to prominence as a photographer in the late 1980s, with a distinct and original view of the landscape of New Zealand. As a photographer with little interest in a sentimentalised view of the land, he pursued a less compromising and more muscular vision that sought to convey this country's remarkable landscape in a real light. In the decades since, Craig Potton has become one of New Zealand's most distinguished landscape photographers, famous for his moody, often dramatic images that signal a deeply felt connection with the wild places of New Zealand. This revised edition of Moment & Memory contains a collection of Craig's finest photographs, personally selected to give a unique view of the New Zealand wilderness. The images range from lush, intense forest interiors and sweeping seascapes to his famous brooding and powerful images of Milford Sound. The photographs are accompanied by a series of reflective essays and writings that offer insights into the impulses, influences and philosophies that underpin his life and approach to photography, and express his concerns about the ongoing threats to wild nature.
    Printed using the latest technology to give the most accurate reproduction of Craig's photographs, Moment & Memory is a significant book for those with an appreciation of fine photography and a love of New Zealand's landscape.
