Celebrating farming in New Zealand

This gorgeous collection of photograph, accompanied by extended captions and insightful interviews, is a visual celebration of the New Zealand farmer and the landscape in which they live and work.  Put together by one New Zealand’s top photojournalists, it tells the stories of the people who are the backbone of farming in this country, helping to bridge the gap in understanding between the urban population and those who produce their food.


Alan Gibson was raised on a remote hill country farm.  Ever since he first picked up a camera as a child, he has wanted to record the people he grew up around and the world they inhabit.  Alan knew the subject of this book intimately; he just had to find the right people to tell the New Zealand farming story.

For more than 25 years Alan Gibson has drawn on his passion for storytelling, working as a photojournalist both in NZ and the UK.  Alan spent most of that time employed by The New Zealand Herald covering the central North Island, which he always regarded as a ‘dream job’ as it allowed him to record life in the landscapes and communities he loved. Alan has been awarded the NZ Press Photographer of the Year title six times (Junior & Senior) in the annual media awards. No one has matched that feat.
