Cook's sites : revisiting history by Mark Adams( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors of this book have revisited the sites of contact between Cook's crews in Dusky South and Queen Charlotte Sound. The photographs and text examine the traces of the past in these places, opening up ambiguities, and avoiding easy judgements about these early meetings. They have also travelled to Europe, to see where botanical specimens, indigenous artifacts, and the voyagers' documents ended up. Cook's Sites is a revelation: of places of unique historical signficance, and of the intriguing stories woven around them
Rauru : Tene Waitere, Māori carving, colonial history by Tene Waitere( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As part of the Auckland Festival of Photography, Two Rooms presents new large scale colour photographs by Mark Adams. The exhibition celebrates the work of carver Tene Waitere and additionally launches the accompanying book, Rauru, published by Otago University Press. The book is a collaboration between Mark Adams and anthropologist Professor Nicholas Thomas from Cambridge University. Tene Waitere (1854-1931) was one of the greatest Māori carvers of the colonial period. Waitere was the first Ngati Tarawhai artist to produce a major corpus of material for European clients ... The book takes its title from Rauru, the meeting house named after the creator of the art of carving in Te Arawa and some other tribal traditions, which arguably incorporates Tene's greatest work. Carved with Anaha te Rahui and Neke Kapua for the Rotorua hotel manager C.E. Nelson over 1897-1900, the whare whakairo is renowned for its figurative representation of major elements of Māori myth, but is innovative and adventurous in many ways, full of mana, and consistently assured in the flawless and dynamic character of its carving. Nelson sold the house to the Museum fur Volkerkunde, Hamburg, in 1904, and it has remained in that museum - renowned for great Oceanic collections, mainly associated with German expeditions and colonies in the Pacific ever since."--Two Rooms Gallery
Māori art : history, architecture, landscape and theory by Rangihiroa Panoho( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally books on Maori art have described the work as either 'traditional' (as in the arts of carving, weaving, painting) or 'contemporary', that is work produced post-1950s. This book presents a unique focus on Maori art by exploring the connection between the traditional and contemporary, and the place of aaori art within an international context. In doing so, it provides a framework for looking at Maori art in a new way. While there are many books on Maori art, these tend to be surveys and there is currently very little critical writing on Maori art and artists. As described by academic and author, the late Professor Roger Neich, It leads to thought-provoking criticism of current art historical approaches to Maori art and constitutes probably the first sustained critique of the modern development of Maori art from an authentic Maori point of view. The book is extensively illustrated with 300 art works, landscapes and meetinghouses, with many never before published images, including 90 specially commissioned photographs from renowned New Zealand photographers Mark Bentley Adams and Haruhiko Sameshima
