Dodoma

Scope and Content

"Intermittent pictorial record of development of Dodoma as Tanzania's national capital. Photographs taken for the Capital Development Authority publications I started, for exhibitions and for a before-and-after historical record. Joined by Sing, and later Suma, to build up photo library and establish studio but shortages of chemicals, paper, film and equipment led to erratic coverage, while pioneering duct contributed to uneven results. I tried to duplicate Dodoma shots so that I could keep one negative for my own archives against an uncertain future for the 2000 or so I left in the CDA photo library. About 250 of these in my files." (Mackay, 1992)

File of selection of photographic prints from Dodoma negatives, the contents of which are split into 'Dodoma', 'Dodoma Region and Beyond' and 'Dodoma Miscellany'.
