Documenting Barangaroo - State Library of New South Wales acquisition

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

Barangaroo development site as seen looking north east from Ballaarat Park, Pyrmont at the end of Darling Island Rd. Houses on High & Kent Sts can be seen with the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background.

The State Library of New South Wales recently acquired eleven images that I shot in 2010 to record the topography and architecture of the Barangaroo precinct in Sydney at a unique moment when the heavy maritime industry had left but before any redevelopment of the site had taken place. The works are now held by the library for research & exhibition uses.

The library acquired the images as high resulution scans, performed by library staff, of my original 6x7cm black & white negatives.
