Tui De Roy Presentation
You are invited to a very special evening in Auckland on Tuesday 1st October. To
celebrate the release of the new masterpiece book PENGUINS: THEIR WORLD, THEIR
WAYS by Tui De Roy, Mark Jones and Julie Cornthwaite — sister volume to
ALBATROSS: THEIR WORLD, THEIR WAYS — Tui will present a collection of
spectacular photos while talking about a life of adventures photographing these great
ocean wanderers, whether astounding divers or majestic fliers. She will share candid
stories behind these books and take you on a virtual journey from the Galapagos Islands
on the Equator to the crystalline frozen shores of Antarctica, and many almost unheardoff
islands in between. A complete selection of her many nature photography books will
be available for purchase and autographing after the talk.
