‘The grass is awfully green’ is part of Peter Black’s ongoing series of photographs examining the social landscape of New Zealand. With his penetrating and wry vision Black looks at a nation trying to balance between its past and the ideal of a 100% Pure New Zealand. The full work covers images made between 2008 and 2012 throughout New Zealand.

The Photospace show features 22 evocative A2 colour images printed by the photographer on 308gsm Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper using Epson archival inks.

Two limited edition books of ‘The grass is awfully green’ accompany the show. This includes 15 copies of a 99-page large hardback featuring the full series of the work, accompanied by an A4 print. Twenty copies of a soft cover catalogue featuring the work in the show are also available.

Peter Black has been photographing the social landscape of New Zealand for over 30 years. His photographs have been extensively exhibited and published, most notably a major survey show at City Gallery, Wellington in 2003. His last book ‘I loved you the moment I saw you’ was published by Victoria University Press in 2011.
