Glenn Busch


Glenn Busch began his working life re-treading truck and car tyres in an Auckland factory.

Since that time he has lived and worked in many different places, and since the 1960s has been using a camera – and later a tape recorder – to gather the stories of people he meets along the way.

He is a senior lecturer at the School of Fine Arts, University of Canterbury.
