Vernacular was a finalist in the inaugural New Zealand Photo Book of the Year Awards - Trade Published.
We were awarded a highly commended. Here is what the judges said:
'Vernacular - The Everyday Landscape of New Zealand is a singular, intriguing and highly readable book. It presents details of everyday life and tells us how to notice things around us. The photos are strong, and the pared back design doesn't shout at you - it creates a harmonious balance between the text and the images. This collaboration between photographer and landscape designer has resulted in a book with great depth that has all the ingredients to attract broad public appeal.'
