According to Judging Chair, Heidi Romano, “Variations for Troubled Hands presented an original concept that combined performance, dance, photography and film into a beautifully executed book. It is a meditative object that draws you in as a participant rather than just an observer.”
Carbon Empire by Allan McDonald and Rim Books was announced as the winner of the New Zealand Photobook of the Year Awards 2017, all 12 finalist books will now travel in an exhibition throughout New Zealand, Australia and internationally.

According to Judging Chair, Mary Macpherson, “Carbon Empire is an outstanding publication where photography, design, editing and production come together to support an original and contemporary concept. The work takes great care with its available materials, utilising an almost beautiful restraint to address global issues via local photographs of abandoned petrol stations, and a figure alone in the street.”
