David Bramwell Cook
Production date
Photographs taken in 1987 and 1989 by commissioned photographer, David Cook for use in the 2000 Shifting Ground: Stories from Rotowaro exhibition. Images depict the same scene taken two years apart in 1987 & 1989. The upper image shows a single story brick residence. There is a downwards sloping driveway going into the property along the right hand side of the image and a footpath going along the frontage of the section - which also has a wood and wire fence. Several established bushes can be seen. There is also a mature conifer in front of the house. The lower image shows the same vista with all buildings gone and only the mature conifer left to identify the property.
