Landscape and Quaternary Environmental Change in New Zealand Book Review:

This book brings together an overview of the recent geological history, active earth and biological processes and human settlement of New Zealand. Topics covered include the very active neotectonic and volcanic setting. Mountain geomorphic processes are examined and new ideas about landsliding are highlighted. The exceptional sedimentary archives of the Whanganui Basin are also presented. As one of two land masses that extend into the southern mid-latitudes, New Zealand is ideally located to investigate changes in Southern Ocean climate. Related to this, mountain glaciation in New Zealand is a focus in global climate change debates. New Zealand also has a unique biota due to its long isolation and is the last major land mass to be settled by people. Advances in DNA technologies have revolutionised our understanding of the histories and processes involved. The book provides a comprehensive review of existing work and highlights new ideas and major debates across all these fields.

New Zealand Book Review:

Photographer and writer Rob Brown has been tramping in some of the most remote areas of New Zealand for over two decades. An essential addition to his pack on these trips is his full range of camera gear, which has enabled him to capture the immensely detailed and beautifully lit photographs that so distinguish his work. In the process he has photographed a breathtaking range of New Zealand's most beautiful and spectacular places, returning time and time again until he has produced an image that captures the essence of these landscapes that so inspire him. In this revised edition of New Zealand: The essential landscape, Rob presents a roll call of what can truly be claimed as the essential landscapes of Aotearoa, from Stewart Island, Fiordland and the glacier country of South Westland, to the volcanoes, coastal scenery and kauri forests of the North Island. A committed conservationist, Rob's belief in the ability of the natural world to enrich the human spirit shines out through his photographs. He is clearly one of the finest landscape photographers working in this country, and New Zealand: The essential landscape is a superb insight into the elegance and strength of his work.

Night Watchers Book Review:

Voted one of the top five places to visit in the world by Lonely Planet, the geographical diversity and startling beauty of New Zealand lures photographers and film makers as well as tourists. "If locations were awarded Oscars, New Zealand would scoop the lot," as a movie reviewer remarked. This book is a photographic celebration of that diverse and very often impressive landscape. Grant Sheehan has recorded his own camera views from Northland to Stewart Island and beyond, to New Zealand's Antarctic territory and her islands in the Southern Ocean. From the road, from the air and at sea, the tranquility and scope of open often remote spaces are captured. The scenery and wildlife shown here underlines why New Zealand is consistently on the global 'must-see' list. And as an extra dimension, the images have been given a striking soundtrack by musician Rhian Sheehan. The CD is included on the facing page.

Landscape Paintings of New Zealand Book Review:

With 135 paintings from early colonial art to the work of contemporary painters, this book is a must-have for every lover of New Zealand and its art. When Landscape Paintings of New Zealand A Journey from North To South was published in 2006 it was hailed by a reviewer thus: 'This is New Zealand art history made accessible, yet still full of scholarship and insight.' Gallery director Dr Fiona Ciaran wrote that 'the book is a cracker that has something for everyone' -concluding that is was 'simply a magnificent landmark in publishing itself'. And now this acclaimed book is back, with 32 new paintings joining the 103 of the original edition. It is studded with arresting works by well-known artists such as Colin McCahon, Peter Sidddell, Dick Frizzell, Doris Lusk, Rita Angus, John Gully, and many many more famous names from New Zealand art history. In addition, the book offers an opportunity for readers to acquaint themselves with lesser known (these days at least) painters such as Archibald Nicholl, Max Walker, Cedric Savage and Douglas MacDiarmid. With its biographical notes on each artist, extensive bibliography, fascinating insights into social history and art history, and with a beautiful new design and very high production values, this book is a must-have for every book shelf and coffee table. Indeed, in 2013 the Times Literary Supplement included it in its 'books of the year' list.

New Zealand Book Review:

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.

Looking for the Light Book Review:

New Zealand born landscape photographer Peter Latham presents this epic collection of his most popular gallery fine‑art prints, together with numerous new images of the New Zealand landscape, never released before. Attaining success for his photography in art galleries and with thousands of collectors worldwide, Peter's poetic eye and unique presentation has earned him a coveted reputation in the elusive art market. Personal background stories and photographs accompany many images, whilst a special "Behind The Scenes" chapter illustrates what Peter endured to achieve their capture. This affords the reader a privileged insight into this remarkable portfolio, one which will be treasured for generations. Peter's passion for New Zealand is evident in his original portrayal of the land from Cape Reinga to Stewart Island, often returning to the same scene many times over several years, all in search of the perfect light. As Peter says, "A degree of madness helps a lot"! Many of the 230 colour photographs in this book are spectacular double page panoramas, carefully selected to represent the best of Peter's vision and his extraordinary life‑long quest to capture this land at its finest.

Harry Turbott Book Review:

Environmental design and landscape architecture are growing fields in New Zealand as people become more aware of the possibilities and benefits of sustainable development. From the early 1960s Dr Harry Turbott played a key role in introducing these concepts to New Zealand. Now his enormous work and rich legacy can be truly celebrated for the first time. Landscape architect, teacher and environmentalist Harry Turbott (1930- 2016) was at the forefront of the first wave of environmental design. This book showcases his life and prolific works, and is beautifully illustrated. The estranged son of well-known radio broadcaster Dr Turbott, Harry had a very interesting and colourful career. Upon graduating from the University of Auckland’s School of Architecture, he won a scholarship to study at Harvard University, where he completed a Master’s in Landscape Architecture in 1958. He then spent 18 months working closely with Dan Kiley, America’s foremost landscape architect, before touring Europe and India with his wife Nan. They returned to New Zealand in 1961 and settled in Karekare, a remote West Auckland beach. From here Harry embarked on a ground-breaking design career, working on motorways, beachfront farms, suburban shopping centres,national parks, Pacific Island resorts and ski fields. He also taught at Auckland’s School of Architecture and Town Planning for more than 30 years. All of Harry’s work showed immense respect and care for the environment. He believed the designer’s role was one of service to society to protect, restore and enhance the environment of which people were intimately and irrevocably part of. Harry recognised the importance of indigenous architecture. He embraced Māori and Pasifika cultures during many collaborative projects, including the restoration of Rarotonga’s Para O Tane Palace in Rarotonga and the Arataki Visitors Centre in the Waitākere Ranges. The biography offers an intimate portrait of Harry’s life, his global influences and outlines several of his legacy projects. The final section is a short chapter written by Sir Bob Harvey on the life of Harry’s wife and her work. Harry and Sir Bob were close friends due to their years spent as neighbours.
