Photographer Mark Adams and renowned anthropologist Nicholas Thomas deepened their research on explored sites of James Cook, William Hodges, Joe Banks, John Webber, Johan and George Forster and photographers Russell Duncan and Alfred Burton by organising an expedition to Tamatea/Dusky Sound in 1995. Joined by Haru Sameshima, Darren Glass, Ian Macdonald and Ian Leeden, they chartered a boat to visit sites including; Milford Sound, Atawhenua/Fiordland, Doubtful Sound and Tamatea/Dusky Sound.

During the two-week undertaking, they examined the traces of the past of these sites. The exhibition is a photographic documentation of their findings with reference to the expeditions of the 19th Century.
