Brian Brake is widely regarded as New Zealand’s most successful international photographer. His career spanned forty years, from the 1940s to his death in 1988. This exhibition offers two slices from Brian Brake’s career: photographs of China in late 1950s, and those of Japan in 1963 and 1964. These gained relatively little attention at the time, but today they firmly rank amongst his best work.

Developed and toured by the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.
