A photographic project by David Cook for the Waikato Museum of Art and History.
This exhibition project - undertaken for the Fine Arts, Photographic and History Departments of the Waikato Museum of Art and History - is the work of David Cook. Employed on a Department of Labour ‘Project Employment Programme’, David has been resident in the Waikato Museum for twelve months. He has worked closely with the Museum photographer Kees Sprengers, who was the originator of the project and has been David’s mentor and technical advisor.
The photographs taken in the course of this project - some eight thousand - are to form part of the Waikato Museum’s Photographic collection and Photographic archives. David has worked closely with the Curator of History, Rose Young and the Registrar David Woodings to ensure accurate recordings of locations and personalities photographed, thereby creating a valuable research resource.
