Photographer and writer Rob Brown has been tramping in some of the most remote and inaccessible 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.
A revised edition of Rob’s best-selling New Zealand: The Essential Landscape, this book 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 Brown’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.
