Phantom House Books are delighted to present our latest book, The Alchemy of Light, a stunning collection of photographs by veteran photographer James Howell.
James has spent much of his working life as a New Zealand diplomat. During this time he travelled widely, his numerous postings to countries including Viet Nam, the United States of America, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Peru, Holland, and Malaysia.
These and other locations have served as his photographic hunting ground. The images that grace this beautiful book represent the efforts of a lifetime and manifest as an extraordinary body of work.
