The unseen city : one hundred and twenty-three photographs of Auckland

documentary heritage
  • Description

    "Baigent described his 1960s Auckland as 'a large number of houses spread about Grafton, Parnell, Mount Eden and Ponsonby, all filled with students, artists, pseudo-intellectuals, layabouts and bums, both bohemian and hobohemian'. His book avoids the beautiful and picturesque, preferring neglected prospects. Images of ruin and decay echo Baigent's attitude to technique."--Wellington City Gallery.
