"This is a great and beautiful book, as good as any art book gets."
--Sunday Star Times
"The essays are an absolute pleasure to read, shedding light--and levity--on Aberhart's oeuvre and tracing his visual and geographical journey's throughout New Zealand. . . . This is sure to be snapped up as one of the best books on a New Zealand photographer to come out in recent times." --ArtNews New Zealand
