On the way to an ambush Bruce Connew, 1999
published by Victoria University Press (with a funding top-up by the photographer)
‘On the way to an ambush’ was published by Victoria University Press, Wellington, New Zealand, and launched 22 April 1999 to a generous crowd at Unity Books, Wellington, the best bookshop in New Zealand.
“This is his record of time spent looking and thinking about what has been seen and what it might mean. Through a process I can only describe as an unfurling or unravelling, this war in Burma becomes a metaphor for Connew’s own life.” Peter Turner, past-editor, Creative Camera magazine.
The final copies of ‘On the way to an ambush’ have been numbered and signed. Each book is accompanied by a signed pigment print of the cover image, 100x150mm, on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, and a DVD of a contemporary recording of a slide show/narration of ‘On the way to an ambush’, first presented at Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, New Zealand, August 1998.
