Photographs by Harvey Benge.

Publisher's Description

The photographs in Harvey Benge’s new photobook, The Traveller, span a period of 15 years or more and cover his many journeys from the South Pacific through Asia to Paris, his European spiritual home.

The book is part fiction, part autobiography and deal with Benge’s recurring themes of loss, and, as his self portraits attest, impermanence. The Traveller is a personal reflection of the world where strange connections occur. Benge’s photographs never offer answers, only questions to tempt the curious. His democratic view is an acerbic, wry response to the world in free-fall where nothing is certain. Yet there is humor, affection, hope and unexpected beauty.

New Zealander, Harvey Benge works in Auckland and Paris. Well known for his many photobooks, The Traveller is his seventh book published by Dewi Lewis. He has twice been a finalist in the prestigious Prix du Livre at Arles Photography Festival, France. He has also exhibited his work extensively in both public and private galleries in Britain, throughout Europe, and in New Zealand. Benge is also involved in curatorial projects and at Auckland’s AUT University he runs a series of ongoing photography workshops with international photographers.
