A photographic journey through Central Otago as seen through the lens of one of New Zealand's great photographers, Arno Gasteiger. A land of big skies and rugged tussock slopes, mountains, hills and stony river beds, Central Otago has rapidly become a top destination for local and international travellers; a landscape of dreams and inspirations. Now dotted with picturesque wineries and life-style properties, the heart of Central is still rugged and idiosyncratic. Introducing some of the more unique activities of the area, such as curling, rafting and horse trekking and covering the drama of the four seasons, this collection aims to capture the "heart" of the region. An introductory text describes the colourful history of the region and the way it has evolved into one of New Zealand's most admired areas.
