A documentary on the life and work of legendary New Zealand rugby photographer Peter Bush, whose photographs have documented the changing face of All Black rugby.

Born in 1930, Bush is New Zealand’s best-known sports photographer. Known as Bushy, his sports journalism career began in 1949 when he photographed his first rugby test for the New Zealand Herald. Since the early 1960s Bushy photographed nearly every All Blacks match, in a career that spanned over 60 years.

Settle in for a weekend binge-fest of films by or about some of the best photographers in New Zealand’s history, brought to you by Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision in collaboration with Photvial Festival and Te Auaha.
