This is Harvey Benge’s fifth book on the subject of urban landscape. Benge lives and works between Auckland and Paris. His interest lies in the strange anthropology of cities, observing and making photographs of the unusual and overlooked in the human landscape where nothing is as it seems. He makes photographic series’ which evolve into bookworks. As well as this, Benge is also involved in curatorial projects and at Auckland’s AUT University ongoing photography workshops with international photographers and curators.
