Brian Brake's career spanned over 40 years. On these pages you can see selections of more than 320 images drawn from each area of his work – from the 1940s to the 1980s, and from both New Zealand and around the world.
The selection includes all the photographs featured in the Te Papa exhibition Brian Brake: Lens on the world as well as the additional images in the accompanying catalogue.
A further 65 that didn't make the final cut enhance the selection. Page spreads from Brake’s photo essays in magazines such as Life and Paris Match are often shown alongside these images.
