five.point.six is an exhibition of images by photojournalist Steve Tickner to mark the 30th anniversary of the earthquake that struck Newcastle city on December 28, 1989 in which 13 people died.

Curated by the Newcastle Herald’s chief photographer Simone de Peak I was asked to scan the 40 negatives and retouch & prepare the files for printing. Many were taken in the hours after the collapse of the Newcastle Workers Club.
