HARD ON THE HEELS: PETER BUSH - CAPTURING THE ALL BLACKS
12 July - 22 September 2013 | Mount Marua Gallery
New Zealand's leading rugby photographer Peter Bush describes capturing an All Black game as 'a total workout'. His powerful photographs are hard-won: the result of chasing the game up and down the field, while others set up their cameras and wait for the game to come to them.
Featuring over 100 images of great All Black moments, games and players over a 60 year period, Hard on the Heels is drawn from Bush's vast library of photographs and features personal favourites, the controversial and contentious, alongside humorous, candid behind-the-scenes shots. Developed by Exhibition Services Tours and proudly sponsored by Canon New Zealand.
