The Holding is a sequence of photographs preoccupied with the pleasures of walking and reading, of experiencing the city as a book or a song.

The Holding is the third photobook by Allan under the Rim Books’ imprint following Between the Silence and the Flame – 2016 and Carbon Empire – 2017.  Carbon Empire won the New Zealand Photobook of the Year Award. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Auckland Art Gallery, Te Papa and the Chartwell Collection. He is a lecturer in photography at Unitec, Te Whare Wānanga o Wairaka, Auckland.
