All aboard please, photographs by Grant Maiden, Wellington, New Zealand.

Late one afternoon a couple of weeks ago in the hill country of the Matale District, we stopped at one of the tiny villages set amongst the abundant tea fields. The people had finished work on the tea plantations as well as school for the day and were talking on the roadside, preparing meals in their homes, and the kids were playing.

This is an ongoing series photographed over the last few months for Victoria University using current students for their handbook guides for prospective students. The layout involved positioning the student on the left side of the page and the right being left free to overlay text.

Spent an enjoyable morning photographing writer Bill Manhire for Victoria University Press recently. A wet day had kept us inside- but it made for nice soft window light filtering into his Wellington apartment.

We went into the studio to shoot these portraits of Bill Nelson for his upcoming book “Memorandum of Understanding”.

Bit of a shabby old day that one in Marokopa, a small coastal settlement up in the Waitomo district. Occasional pelting rain breaking up the persistent low cloud. Felt like everyone had packed up and left.
