Geoff Dale's professional life has been spent capturing the moments that have defined our current events. His retrospective of news and sports in New Zealand over the past forty years provides a thoughtful, provocative and insightful collection of iconic images and memories. If you lived through these events, fascinating background information will add a new dimension, as well as professional techniques from a highly skilled practitioner. From the now-infamous Fish and Chip Brigade plotting their rise to power, to the shot of the sunken Rainbow Warrior the morning after the fatal bombing in Auckland harbour, these are poignant and important moments in our history. Contrast All Black captains Buck Shelford and Richie Macaw - one covered with mud, blood and the sweat of on-field battle, the other being sprayed by a make-up artist; witness the grief of the family of an innocent victim of a motorway shooting; wince at a jockey's bone-crushing fall; or shadow-box with Mohammed Ali . . . These amazing photographs transport you to those decisive moments, providing an absorbing insight into what it has been like to be a Kiwi.
