There is no other photographer in this country who has so convincingly captured the huge sweeping grandeur of the New Zealand landscape than Andris Apse. He was the first to realise the potential and then master the use of panoramic photography in this country. Famous for his determination and patience, he has spent decades travelling all over New Zealand gathering his carefully crafted images, often returning time and again to the same spot until the perfect combination of weather and light has yielded the photograph he wants.
Over the last 30 years Andris Apse has created an extraordinary body of work, whose scale, use of light and powerful mood has created a truly unique portrait of New Zealand. In Light & Landscape, the best of his New Zealand photography is masterfully presented in a superb, large-format book. The images range all over New Zealand and include both remote wilderness and the developed rural landscapes of New Zealand. This is a truly spectacular book from our pre-eminent panoramic landscape photographer.
