Since 1996, Andrew Ross has been building an extraordinary record of aspects of a vanishing New Zealand. His beautifully lit, atmospheric photographs of dilapidated buildings, industrial workshops and domestic interiors are one of the outstanding bodies of work in contemporary New Zealand photography.

For Fiat Lux, five writers have collaborated with Ross to choose and then write a short essay on ten photographs, each on a particular theme: workshops, environmental portraits, domestic interiors, buildings demolished for the Wellington motorway extension, and the use of natural light.

'In Ross photographs, Wellington becomes the naked city, with its old plumbing, dusty wiring and dirty linen literally exposed....You get a sense of the phantasmal city, a spirit city, the city as an index of the hidden'. Mark Amery
