    "In my quest to re-imagine Christchurch I dig through boxes of photographs, removing the proof sheets one at a time, searching for images that still breathe." – David Cook

    Take a trip down Retro Avenue with this beautifully designed book of photographs of 1980s Christchurch. After the earthquake of 22 February 2011, photographer David Cook returned to his former hometown and found the central city irreparably damaged. He was inspired to unearth his archive of 6000 photographs of the city he'd shot as a young man in his twenties, rebuilding through images the city as he remembered it. Cathedral Square, Centennial Pool, Lancaster Park, schoolboys, punks, nuns – this is a moving, nostalgic journey through the city we'll never see again.

    This book was made possible with the support of the College of Creative Arts, Massey University and Christchurch City Council.
