Abstract or Summary

Research Question: How can lens based practices shape perceptions of conflict, post-conflict, contested space and the public sphere both nationally and internationally. Focusing on his 20 year photo-documentary research project on the coal mining activities in Rotowaro, New Zealand, David Cook discusses a range of issues that inform the process of representation. Issues include multivocality, reflexivity, margins, centres and reading archives.
