A photographic celebration of the people of New Zealand by renowned photographer Brian Curtis.
While there is a huge number of books around that showcase the many landscapes of our country, few have taken the opportunity to celebrate our people.
Faces of New Zealand captures more than 100 images of Kiwis from all over the country and from all walks of life, taking us inside the lives of the locals. Each photo is accompanied by a brief explanatory caption, providing context and commentary. An introduction reflects on the photographic style of portraiture and what inspired the book's photographs.
A 'how to take portrait photographs' section at the back of the book provides tips and suggestions for aspiring photographers.
