Hidden Light

ISBN: 9781877375569

Authors: Ken Hall, Haruhiko Sameshima    Publisher: Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu

In uncovering the remarkable, largely unseen work of early New Zealand photographers, Hidden Light: Early Canterbury and West Coast Photography is an exploration of an often overlooked aspect of our artistic past. This publication highlights the sometimes unsettling stories of photographers at work in nineteenth-century Te Waipounamu. Spectacular landscapes by skilled amateurs and professionals join powerful images of tangata whenua, settlers and mining scenes. The stories and work of several little-known pioneering women photographers are also given new attention. Published with the assistance of the Friends of Christchurch Art Gallery
