Peter Peryer: Photographer
With essays by Peter Simpson & Peter Peryer

Peter Peryer is one of New Zealand's leading contemporary photographers. As Peter Simpson puts it, `Peryer has over the past three decades and more constructed a world - call it Peryerland - which has its own distinctive topography, climate and features. Only the best photographers are capable of such a feat'. And as the 80 plates in this book show, Peryer is also incredibly innovative, constantly refining his photographic practice - notably with his embrace of digital photography from 1998 and his increasing interest in colour.

Peter Peryer: Photographer is the largest body of Peryer's work yet assembled, personally selected by the photographer and largely drawn from Peryer's enormously productive work of the past ten years. A wide-ranging introduction to Peryer's work, by Peter Simpson, and an autobiographical essay by Peryer himself are also included. Interested in doubles, pattern and repetition, problems of scale, the surreal and the grotesque, Peryer most often focuses on the 'thingness' of his subjects and objects. Here are whitebait, shells, two goats, a Meccano bus, a `sand shark', planes and a windsock, as well as a Moeraki boulder, the trig on Rangitoto and the Alexandra clock. Rich in lovingly examined bits and pieces, and prompting a viewer always to think harder about their significance, this book is a quirky and intimate guide to Peryerland.
