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.
