Pictures They Want to Make presents a selection of works by twelve contemporary photographers. It examines how their images are created and the motivations that drive them. Each artist has a connection to the Auckland region; some of the photographs capture aspects of that region’s culture and landscape while others explore places and people elsewhere in New Zealand. These are photographs that show how the individual artists see the world and the pictures they want to make. Included in the book are some of New Zealand’s most acclaimed photographers, as well as a number of exciting emerging artists. For each artist there is a full page introductory essay followed by representative examples of their work, while an extended introduction establishes the case for looking beyond the more easily recognisable aspects of subject matter to the different effects and feelings of the images themselves. The writing style is refreshingly accessible while the large format and superb reproductions allow readers to fully appreciate the photographs as pictures. 

Featured artists: Mark Adams, Edith Amituanai, Fiona Amundsen, Harvey Benge, Bruce Connew, Chris Corson-Scott, Ngahuia Harrison, Derek Henderson, Ian Macdonald, Haruhiko Sameshima, Geoffrey H. Short, Talia Smith.
