Nick Danziger: Mana
For the first time, a camera goes deep inside the sacred space of the All Black camp – revealing the highs and the lows, the pain and the passion, the commitment and the courage of New Zealand’s iconic sporting team. Best-selling photojournalist Nick Danziger and writer James Kerr have been granted unprecedented access to the All Black environment as the team builds towards the 2011 Rugby World Cup. The result is a landmark publishing event that looks at the men of the All Blacks and the land that they come from – focussing on how New Zealand has shaped its national team, and how its national team has helped shape New Zealand. Intimate, beautiful and revealing, Mana is an historic event in New Zealand publishing and, importantly, a chance for those who love rugby and Aotearoa to give something back: all profits from the Mana Project will go to Kids Can Stand Tall, official charity partner of the All Blacks, to provide school lunches, raincoats and shoes for the most disadvantaged of Kiwi kids – ”because no New Zealand child should be left out in the cold’.
