Review: "Into the Light is a serious, but readable history of photography in New Zealand. It provides a comprehensive survey of New Zealand's most significant photographers and is aimed at a general audience. The photographers featured include early colonial professionals such as the Burton Brothers, George Valentine, and William and Fred Tyree, along with those documenting New Zealand's burgeoning identity in the Twentieth Century, such as John Pascoe during World War II and the gritty, authentic photography of Les Cleveland. Current senior practitioners, such as Marti Friedlander, Peter Peryer, Ans Westra, Anne Noble and Laurence Aberhart all are represented, along with more contemporary practitioners such as Fiona Pardington, Gavin Hipkins and Yvonne Todd."--Unireps.com.au.
