Description

“New Zealand Photography” spans the country's history, from early 19th-century portraits of Maori and scenic views to the latest contemporary art photography. The book features more than 350 photographs drawn from the national collection at Te Papa, with each image is beautifully reproduced and accompanied by richly informative descriptions. 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 the way 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. Featured photographers include by 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 Biography: Athol McCredie is a curator of photography at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, where he has worked since 2001. He has been involved with photography as researcher, curator, and photographer since the 1970s. He is the author of “Brian Brake: Lens on the World” and “Fields of Golden Daffodils” and the coauthor of “Witness to Change.”
