Ghosts in the Landscape - Photography by Grant Sheehan

 Wellington photographer and publisher Grant Sheehan's latest photographic book, Ghosts in the Landscape has been published by Phantom House Books. 
Ghosts in the Landscape is a visual journey through New Zealand in search of aspects of the countryside that resonate in our national psyche.
These ‘ghosts’ take many forms, memorials of wars and events, in places/locations of disasters and the smaller things, like the old abandoned houses, discarded rusting cars of bygone eras, or the prolific red sheds scattered throughout the land.
Finally, there is the haunting power and grandeur of our diverse landscape; sometimes beautiful, in its quiet still moments, other times terrifying, in its stormy violent moods.

A nationwide exhibition of photographs from Ghosts in the Landscape will follow the release of the book.
You can preview some of the images here: www.ghostsinthelandscape.co.nz

"Sheehan's landscapes are not the sort you find on postcards; instead, he picks out rich colours and textures: lichen on a fence, crops in a field, layers in rock, reflections in water, clouds soaring in the sky. He captures the atmosphere of a place more than recording its landmarks." - Grace Dalley
