Who would think that a door had so much to say? But it seems we are fascinated by them, perhaps because they are both mysterious and promising; perhaps because they reflect our geography, traditions and culture; or maybe just because they are often colourful, beautifully crafted and intriguing to look at. Whatever the reason for our fascination, Jeff Raines collection of beautiful door photographs from throughout New Zealand is sure to satisfy. From Whangarei to Invercargill, the 160 doors presented here reflect NZ's many different landscapes and histories and sometimes just the simple quirkiness of their creators.
Jeff Raines has been a bookseller for 32 years. He began taking photographs 10 years ago and to date has produced 15 different calendars from his images.
