MERCY MERCER

Publication Design

Derek Henderson is one of New Zealand’s most renowned photographers. His second monograph ‘Mercy Mercer’ follows the length of New Zealand’s Waikato River. Its visual narrative is punctuated by unexpected moments, offering glimpses of beauty and peacefulness but also the tension of an ‘unofficial’ New Zealand; colonial invasion, poverty, immigration, boredom, and the ecological degradation of the landscape at the hands of commerce.
