About the exhibition
New Zealand's leading rugby photographer, Peter Bush, describes capturing an All Black game as "a total workout". His powerful photographs are hard-won: the result of chasing the game up and down the field, while others set up their cameras and wait for the game to come to them.
Featuring over 100 images of great All Black moments, games and players over a 60-year period, Hard on the Heels is drawn from Bushy's vast library of photographs and features personal favourites, the controversial and contentious, alongside humorous, candid behind-the-scenes shots. Toured by Exhibition Services Ltd and created especially to commemorate New Zealand's hosting of the Rugby World Cup 2011, this exhibition is a must-see for all Kiwis and visiting rugby fans. The Millennium Art Gallery is delighted to be hosting the first South Island viewing of this exhibition and is proud to be part of the region's launch of projects for the RWC 2011 festival.
