Brian Brake : lens on the world


The complete life and work of Brian Brake, New Zealand’s best-known photographer, has at last been encapsulated in one stunning book. Comprising more than 300 superb photographic reproductions and six all-new essays, this publication gives the reader new insights into Brake, the man, and how he saw the world. Remembered for his rare images of communist China in the 1950s and photo essays such as Monsoon, this is the first time Brake’s work has been critically considered in its entirety.
