Author(s): Chris Mirams & Ross Land
Made in New Zealand celebrates Kiwidom by examining our characteristics through the eyes of some of our best and most recognised achievers- essentially a coffee table book saluting New Zealand and New Zealanders. This is done by the sharing of insights and perspectives on how New Zealand has influenced and shaped them and how they believe the attitudes, beliefs and make-up of Kiwis has changed as New Zealand has evolved as a country. An essential ingredient in creating a product of value is strong 'in situ' portrait photography and innovative design. This book achieves on both counts. Award-winning New Zealand photographer Ross Land and award-winning journalist Chris Mirams have managed to get total buy-in from all subjects approached. From Alison Holst to David Kirk; from Professor Margaret Brimble to Jon Toogood and John Minto to Sir Graham Henry, Made in New Zealand sweeps the full gamut of New Zealand society.
Chris Mirams is multiple Qantas Award winning journalist with a number of books to his credit. Ross Land is a multi award winning photographer who has almost 40 years experience in news and magazine photography.
