Thursday 7 March 2019 - SOLD OUT
6 – 8.00pm
Multi-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 special photo.
Michael will share 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, to capture animal behaviour, photographic techniques, and his first-hand accounts of the changing environments of Antarctica and the Arctic circle.
This evening will also include the launch of Subaqueous, an installation of 16 student-produced films on regional ocean conservation issues. Produced in partnership with the University of Sydney.
Hosted by the maritime museum’s Alex Gaffikin, curator of photography exhibition Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
Note: Ticket includes light refreshments and exclusive access to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition between 5 - 6pm.
