2020 was a rollercoaster, but while most of us were stuck at home, press photographers were out there documenting the thick of it.
For the 10th annual Photos1440 exhibition, more than 200 published and unpublished images from The Sydney Morning Herald photographers are being displayed at the State Library of New South Wales.
They cover poignant and powerful scenes from the last year, including the firefighters trying to tame bushfires, the wreckage of a plane strewn on a sunflower field, the effects of the global Covid-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matters protests.
The exhibit also looks back at scenes from the last ten years – with award-winning photography by Herald chief photographer Nick Moir and Gold Walkley winner Kate Geraghty – marking a decade of Photos 1440.
Entry is free.
