Ocean Talks: Moments That Took My Breath Away
2 Murray Street, Sydney, NSW, 2000, Australia
No upcoming dates
Award-winning international nature photographer Michael Aw has lived on the edge of art and adventure — having been thrown completely out of the water by humpback and brydes whales while in pursuit of that one incredible photograph. Michael will share stories of intimate moments with orcas, leopard seals, crocodiles, tiger sharks, great whites, and southern right whales. Plus, for the first time ever, see pictures of undescribed species of the stunning Dumbo Octopus, recently discovered in the deep Arctic ocean. In this visually-rich evening, Michael will share the extreme lengths he goes to in order to capture animal behaviour, his photographic techniques, and first-hand accounts of the changing environments of Antarctica and the Arctic circle. The evening will be hosted by the Maritime Museum’s Head of Interpretation and Design, Alex Gaffikin, who is also responsible for bringing the world-renowned Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition to Sydney. Tickets include light refreshments and exclusive after-hours access to Wildlife Photographer of the Year prior to the talk starting, from 5-6pm.
