Description of this Book

Craig Potton rose to prominence as a photographer in the late 1980s, with a distinct and original view of the landscape of Aotearoa/New Zealand. He was a photographer with little interest in a sentimentalised or romantic view of the land, but rather 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 parts of New Zealand. This book collects together many of his most celebrated images in one place, a body of work that clearly shows why his reputation is so strong. The images range from his celebrated aerial photography, especially that of the Southern Alps and Fiordland, and of the volcanoes of the Central North Island, his beautifully composed and complex forest interiors, his gentle seascapes, and also those from the rural parts of New Zealand. Beautifully produced and packaged in large format, this will be a book of New Zealand landscape photography not to be missed.
