Description of this Book

The Christchurch earthquake of 22 February 2011 was one of the worst natural disasters in New Zealands history. The quake devastated New Zealands second biggest city and caused significant damage to infrastructure both within Christchurch itself and its immediate surrounds. Hachette New Zealand was approached by the Canterbury District Police to produce a highquality book of colour photography taken by Police photographers, documenting the response to the earthquake. The 208-page book, Christchurch 22.2 Beyond the Cordon, is full of stunning, evocative photographs which were primarily taken throughout the rescue operation. The police photographers were, in the main, the only photographers allowed to work inside the cordoned area of the CBD known as the Red Zone. They had long-term access to all the major rescue sites and have hundreds of stunning images documenting the rescue effort, the work of emergency services personnel from both New Zealand and around the world, as well as the devastating upheaval of the cityscape. The photos will be accompanied by brief captions as well as an introduction documenting the photographers personal responses to Operation Earthquake. There will also be a foreword by high-profile Canterbury District Police Superintendent Dave Cliff. This will be the definitive work of the Christchurch disaster. All royalties from the book will be donated to Christchurchs Family Help Trust. Order
