"It is not uncommon to hear the phrase 'take a picture' used in connection with photography, when really what photographers do is make pictures. Pictures They Want to Make presents a selection of works by twelve contemporary photographers, and examines the various ways in which the images are created, and the motivations that drive them. Each of the artists has a connection to the Auckland region; some of the photographs capture aspects of that region's culture and landscape, while others testify to the mobility and ambition of the artists - their familiarity with other places and people. The images reveal distinctive identities and characters, Auckland's place in the Pacific, the influence of history on the contemporary environment, the wonder of the commonplace, and much more. Most of all, they are personal statements; they are about how the artists see the world."--Publisher description.
