Jellicoe & Bledisloe: Hamilton in the 90s

5 October 2022 - 28 May 2023

Daily 10am to 5pm

Free entry

When photographer David Cook moved into Hamilton East, he was drawn to the colourful, creative and chaotic lives of his neighbours.

With camera in hand, he explored back-yard mechanics to Sunday roasts, inventing an intimate documentary of a State Housing suburb in the 90s, moments before gentrification set in.

On tour from the New Zealand Portrait Gallery Te Pūkenga Whakaata.
