5 years in the making, is a sumptious ode to the power of man and nature, the built Sydney and the one mother nature crafted.
As Barry Jones decribes in the forward of this book -
'In my experience, the greatest harbour locations for cities are Sydney, Rio de Janeiro, Venice, Istanbul and Hong Kong, and
in that order.' Of course, San Francisco, Auckland, Hobart, Vancouver, Seattle, Buenos Aires, Athens and Nafplio are spectacular too.
Matt Irwin’s spectacular photography confrms that feeling of excitement and wonder that Australians generally experience when they arrive in Sydney, myself included — the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, at any time of day or night, the incomparable beaches of Bondi and Manly, the coves at Mosman, waves crashing on rocks at North Head, the ferries, architectural survivals from the time of Queen Victoria, light shows, spectacular colour, and emotional black and white.
This photographic art coffee table book is the perfect companion to Melbourne A Love Affair, Matt's first book of a few years ago. Now this is the perfect compliment.
