Peter James Quinn has been capturing images of New Zealanders at work over the length of the country for the past thirty years. Over this time, major shifts in what work looks like in New Zealand can be seen.

Work is a part of our collective and individual identities. We relate to others through the jobs they and we do. Work, of all kinds, consumes a major part of our daily lives.

Through our labours, together we are shaping New Zealand. Through the work of Peter James Quinn, we see the undulating shape of our nation taking form.
