              Te Atatu Me: photographs of an urban New Zealand village is a personal portrait of West Auckland's Te Atatu Peninsula by John B. Turner, the noted New Zealand photographer, teacher and editor of PhotoForum. Recorded over a seven year period from 2005 to 2011, Turner's documentary... photographs celebrate the character and pulse of life in this unique and yet typical multicultural New Zealand urban community where he lived. Turner captures the sense of place and the often surprising pace of change, as new houses pop up, shops change hands, people come and go, and familiar sights are changed forever. Chosen to represent an extensive photographic essay of the recent past, Turner's pictures are accompanied by a perceptive historical essay, 'Peninsula Dreams,' by local illustrator and historian Grant Cole, editor of West of Eden, the journal of the West Auckland Historical Society. Altogether theirs is an affectionate portrait of Tat Norf with its rural beginnings, its development as a working class suburb in the 1950s and transformation into an increasingly middle class and multicultural community today. A rewarding place to live, Te Atatu Peninsula can be seen as a microcosm of New Zealand society now, challenged with the collective responsibility of preserving its special identity and best values under the pressures of Auckland's rapid growth and fundamental changes in New Zealand society.

              The book PhotoForum at 40: Counterculture, Clusters, and Debate in New Zealand is a book to commemorate, reflect, and celebrate a wide body of New Zealand photographs that have been published in the photography journal PhotoForum, and displayed in their exhibitions. It offers an ...unwritten and vitally needed history of the communities, relationships, and events that have shaped photographers and the images they make. It presents an incisive look at photographic art developments in New Zealand in the crucial forty-year period from 1974 to the present day. This is achieved through the thorough unearthing of the archives of PhotoForum, an incorporated society established by John B. Turner and associates to promote photographic practice as means of communication and expression . Via a rigorous program of publications, exhibitions, workshops and seminars an impressive role call of New Zealand photographers and their formative and seminal works and portfolios have been featured, published and promoted. This book brings together some of the most significant images and portfolios (for example, those by Peter Peryer, Murray Cammick, Anne Noble, and Fiona Clark), and highlights the most pertinent and illuminating critical thinking and explosive debates about photographic practice in articles and reviews published in PhotoForum journal. Importantly, through the rich traces of never-seen-before contemporaneous personal correspondences between photographers and editors across the period, plus fresh interviews with key protagonists, PhotoForum at 40 contributes an original take on the more personal qualities of photography and the ways in which communities, friendships, debates, and dialogue have informed the photographic arts in New Zealand.
