A GOOD READ

Waihi Leader - - News -

A new book, I Am New Zealand, is a fresh look at Aotearoa New Zealand through the lenses of many pho­tog­ra­phers to help the Men­tal Health Foun­da­tion.

All roy­al­ties from the sales of this book will go to the Men­tal Health Foun­da­tion of New Zealand.

Nikon in­vited the photographic com­mu­nity to build an im­age map of the na­tion on­line (iamnewzealand.co.nz).

Many creative and in­spir­ing pho­tographs were posted with a range that says I am New Zealand.

The book is a mod­ern take on the old stan­dard scenic New Zealand book.

It col­lects a range of per­sonal views of Aotearoa from pho­tog­ra­phers, both ama­teur and pro­fes­sional, along with their thoughts on what makes New Zealand.

The book looks at many dif­fer­ent as­pects of the coun­try, in­clud­ing peo­ple, in­ner cities, sport — not just sheep and moun­tains, al­though they are rep­re­sented too. The thoughts of the pho­tog­ra­phers add an in­ter­est­ing di­men­sion, whether talk­ing about how/why they took the shot, or how it stands for their vi­sion of New Zealand.

■ I Am New Zealand can be or­dered from Waihi, Katikati Pa­pers Plus or Carters Pho­to­graph­ics for $45.
