Frederick Cooper: Pioneer Photographer

Summer 2017

This fascinating installation centred on the pioneering photography of Frederick Cooper, a nineteenth century photographer. Hauling heavy photographic material to remote mountain regions, Cooper captured stunning images of the Southern Alps. His photography helped kick-start mountain and glacier tourism by bringing images of the beautiful South Island to people for the first time.

Frederick Cooper’s story was displayed through a selection of his famous photographs from our collection, paired with examples of the photographic equipment he hauled up the Southern Alps to take them.

 

This exhibition was displayed in our Research Room.
