              Though many have predicted it, postcards have not been killed off by the digital world, and remain very popular with tourists. People still enjoy a straightforward, tangible portrayal of the places they visit and the things they do as tourists. Postcards from New Zealand aims to ...translate the popularity of postcards into book form with a range of postcard-type images that cover the visitor experience in New Zealand. Consequently the photographs in this book are appropriately diverse, with all of the key tourist destinations covered, as well as plenty more in-between. The pocket-edition format has been a spectacularly successful part of Craig Potton Publishing's pictorial New Zealand range, and Postcards from New Zealand will be another welcome addition to this series.

              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 an...d 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.

              Change in New Zealand society, seen in small towns throughout the North and South Islands, is the subject of Mary Macpherson's Old New World photographic book and touring exhibition. The in-depth study by Wellington-based photographer Mary Macpherson took seven years of travel ar...ound New Zealand to create. Lopdell House Gallery in Auckland has published the 96 page hardback book. It will be launched on 14 June 2012 with an exhibition of over 40 images of Macpherson's work to coincide with the Auckland Festival of Photography. The striking colour photographs feature buildings, houses, statues and murals to tell the story of a shift from the remains of the traditional New Zealand of the 1950s and 60s to places of boom and prosperity that look very different to our remembered past. Within that major story arc, I wanted to show the major social and economic trends I saw over the seven years - towns painting up the main street to attract custom and celebrate their identity, places that remained resolutely themselves and those that were heading into decline, said Mary Macpherson.

              In New Zealand, the great inland harbors of the North Island are drowned river valleys that differ greatly in size, but share a similar climate with prevailing westerly winds. These harbors were settled by Maori following the great migration in the 13th and 14th centuries and hav...e played significant roles in Maori history. To this day, sacred marae spaces dot their shorelines. The large number of shipwrecks around the entrances and within the harbors bear witness to their importance as centers of commerce and trade in earlier times, particularly following the arrival of Europeans in the early- to mid-19th century. For the past three years, photographer Alastair Grant has travelled these great inland harbors on the west coast of the North Island, and, for this book, he has created a magnificent and beautiful color photo essay of these fascinating under-appreciated regions. Grant has captured their atmosphere and, as well, a feel for the people who live and work around them.

              Wellington, like any other place, is made unique by its people. And Wellington is made a unique place especially by its community of artists. Inside these pages are photographs of musicians on stage or painters at work, capturing both their artistic and private sides. Altogether,... the amount of time captured by photographs in this book adds up to just over ten seconds, as is the title.

His colour photographs taken in February suddenly became yesterday's pictures.... The photograph on the front cover of the Cathedral was taken on 2 February, 20 days before the eathquake"--Back cover verso.
