One of New Zealand’s most significant photographers, Mark Adams, is renowned for his examination of issues surrounding our Māori and colonial histories. His current exhibition, Cook’s Sites, records two South Island localities that are intrinsically linked with Captain James Cook. Cook and his crews visited Dusky Sound in Fiordland and Queen Charlotte Sound in the Marlborough Sounds during the early 1770s. Today these places, which represent some of the first interactions between the British Empire and Māori, are loaded with bicultural significance. Adams’ photographic representations of these sites are ambiguous, leaving open questions about what traces of these first encounters remain, and how we should read them.

Cook’s Sites will be at 209 Tuam Street, Christchurch, from 25 January to 23 March.

The gallery is open 10am–5pm, Monday to Friday, and 10am–4pm, Saturday and Sunday.
