New Zealand's South Pacific And Tasman Sea.

New Zealand's South Pacific And Tasman Sea. Photographs by Chip Hooper. Robert Klein Gallery, Boston, 2007. Unpaged, numerous black and white illustrations, 11¾x9¾".

American photographer Chip Hooper is best known for his ongoing series of ocean photography.

His book 'New Zealand's South Pacific and Tasman Sea' was published by the Robery Klein Gallery to coincide with several exhibitions of Chip Hooper's work in 2007 and 2008.

"In recent years, Hooper's travels have taken him to the rugged shores of New Zealand.

He continues to perfect his approach to photographing the ocean, steadily refining his sense of lyrical minimalism, as in Toward Dunedin, South Pacific, 2003, where a horizon of dark water is broken by a jagged line of distant mountains, or in Cape Foulwind Beach, Tasman Sea, 2003, where a monolithic cliff rises beyond the frame.
His work is in permanent collections at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Monterey Museum of Art, Portland Museum of Art, and the Tokyo Photographic Cultural Center. He lives in Carmel Valley, California."
