Description of this Book

Have camera will travel. For over 50 years this has been Peter Bush's guiding maxim. Remarkably, he shot his first rugby match for the New Zealand Herald in 1949. Sixty years later he can still be seen on the sidelines of all major All Blacks matches. He is a true living legend in New Zealand photojournalism. A raconteur par excellence, Bushie's anecdotal tales from his years in the army, merchant navy and as a news photographer attached to numerous rugby tours, make for absorbing reading. While he has always been happy to have his photographic work turned into books, he has, until now, resisted all offers to produce a fully-fledged biography. His life has been one long adventure. This biography promises to be a special book on a special New Zealander.
