New Zealand: Eye on the Landscape is a new book of high-quality landscape photography aimed at the top end of the New Zealand pictorial book market. The distinguishing feature of this book is that the images used will not be the work of one photographer,but rather a collection of the best images from a wide range of landscape photographers. The inspiration for this concept has been the extraordinary work that is exhibited by members of the Photographic Society of New Zealand, the umbrella organisation for a wide range of photographic groups. The majority of photographs created by their members, who range from professional, semi-professional to keen amateur, is hardly seen and never published. The best of it, however, is of the highest quality and often provides a fresh and original view of a much-photographed country. The book will follow a standard format, with a focus on all of the main areas visited by tourists. The selection will be undertaken by publisher Robbie Burton and photographer Craig Potton, one of the most experienced photoediting partnerships in the New Zealand publishing industry. New Zealand: Eye on the Landscape will be a fresh and original pictorial book, with the highest standard of photography and production.
