William H. T. Partington (1855 – 1940) Portrait of a Maori Woman Circa 1900 Silver-gelatin print 145 x 90 mm Partington was the son of early Auckland settlers whose windmill, Partington's Windmill, was a well-known landmark. When his Auckland studio burnt down, he moved to Wanganui and established a studio there. The photographs in this group were taken in the Wanganui at the end of the 19th and very beginning of the 20th centuries. The photographs document a people in transition. As well as this historical significance, the photographs stand as works of art - displaying Partington's careful eye, fine sense of composition and technical excellence.
