Lyricism, beauty and spirit inspire photographer Alan Miller's personal response. He has said of his work that 'you are trying to dig something out of things—anything that can sustain you'. Miller has travelled extensively and for prolonged periods in the pursuit of his subject matter. The mapping of internal emotions or states of mind on to the landscape, or man-made forms, is one of  the key elements in his body of photographs. 

In this, Miller's first publication, the collection of photographs speaks of the New Zealand landscape with a subtle and lyrical voice.

With an essay by Martin Edmond and interview with Kriselle Baker.

There is love and poetry aplenty in this book...[Miller] is particularly strong at manipulating figure/ground relationships, as in the haunting cover image of the upper body of the horse viewed against a grey sky, or a striking close-up of a black tree trunk against the white snows of Mt Ngauruhoe.  Peter Simpson, New Zealand Herald, January 26, 2011
