PhotoForum at 40 brings together some of its most significant portfolios, critical thinking, and debates about photography, drawn from the PhotoForum archives as well as personal correspondence between the photographers and editors. It includes new interviews and conversations with some of the key players who have shaped PhotoForum’s history. 

From the formative portfolios of Anne Noble, Peter Peryer, and Murray Cammick to the written reflections and conversations of Bruce Connew, Rhondda Bosworth, and Glenn Busch with Tim J. Veling, and others, it delves into the past, present, and future of photography in New Zealand. 

In contributing essays, co-founder of PhotoForum John B. Turner offers a personal recollection of the Society’s early days, and Athol McCredie, Curator of Photography at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, provides a brief history of PhotoForum’s sister organisation, PhotoForum/Wellington. 

The volume concludes with a chronology mapping the development of photographic art in New Zealand over more than half a century.
