Kauri Cameraman by Paul Campbell
Tudor Collins was a bushman, businessman and keen amateur photographer. He took more than 2000 photos in the days when kauri was being logged, and these photos are now kept at the Matakohe Kauri Museum in Northland. This book is a selection of the best of these photos, showing the men, the huge trees they felled, and the various methods, from dams, bullocks and steampower that were used to get the giant logs out of the bush.
Text is minimal--the outsatnding historical photos tell the story. A fascinating look at what New Zealanders were once capable of achieving.
