About this book

Craig Potton rose to prominence as a photographer in the late 1980s, with a distinct and original view of the landscape of New Zealand. He has become one of New Zealand’s most distinguished landscape photographers, famous for his moody, often dramatic images that signal a deeply felt connection with the wild places of New Zealand.

This revised edition of Moment and Memory contains a collection of Craig’s finest photographs, personally selected to give a unique view of the New Zealand wilderness. The images range from lush, intense forest interiors and sweeping seascapes to his famous brooding and powerful images of Milford Sound. The photographs are accompanied by a series of reflective essays and writings that offer insights into the impulses, influences and philosophies that underpin his life and approach to photography.

Printed using the latest technology to give the most accurate reproduction of Craig’s photographs, Moment and Memory is a significant book for those with an appreciation of fine photography and a love of New Zealand’s landscape.
