Lights in the Landscape: New Zealand Lighthouses
Lights in the Landscape is a spectacular photographic journey from New Zealand’s most northern lighthouse at Cape Reinga, to our most southern, in Foveaux Strait. The book shows not only the lighthouses themselves but also the landscape around them, capturing the wild beauty of the coastline, the often unpredictable weather and the wildlife that live in these, mostly isolated areas.
In this book, Grant has captured the images with state of the art camera equipment. They feature sharp textural landscapes in many different light situations from storm light and moonlight and nightscapes filled with stars. Accompanying the photographs is text giving a short history and for lighthouses still operational, technical details. Each image includes Photographic data in the caption of each image.
Award-winning photographer Grant Sheehan began his working life as a survey draughtsman, making maps. However, his great love has always been photography and for the past twenty-five years he has made it his business. Over that time, Grant’s photographic skills have been focused on architecture — exteriors of buildings and interiors — travel, with numerous photo essays on places and people from Africa to Antarctica, plus landscape and food assignments.
