Steve Waugh announces Sydney Photography Exhibition ahead of summer of cricket
Ahead of the highly anticipated Vodafone Ashes series, former Australian captain Steve Waugh has teamed up with the Hyatt Regency Sydney to hold a photography exhibition from his best-selling book “The Spirit of Cricket- India”.
The hotel lobby will be lined with over 80 stunning colour prints from Steve’s work, including shots such as “sand dune cricket” which won the 2020 Wisden photo of the year competition. The exhibition will also include a selection of photos of the next edition of Steve’s project “The Spirit of Cricket- Australia”.
Considered one of Australian cricket’s greatest ever captains, Steve’s exhibition will include a collection from some of cricket’s greats, with 25 authentic and player-owned Baggy Green caps on display from Don Bradman, Steve Waugh himself, Mark Waugh, Ian Chappell, Richie Benaud, Allan Border, Dennis Lillee and many more.
Steve’s exhibition coincides with the countdown to the 2021/22 Vodafone Ashes series, which is just under six weeks away, when Australia takes on England at the Gabba. Waugh, successfully captained Australia to Ashes victory in 2001 and 2002-2003.
Former Australian captain Steve Waugh said:
“Cricket has and always will be in my blood. I was privileged to represent my country for over 18 years, and now, capturing the spirit of cricket through my camera lens represents a further extension of my love for the game,” Waugh said.
“I am proud to present this Exhibition to showcase images that truly exemplify why cricket is a religion in India, whilst also giving you a glimpse into my next project - "The Spirit of Cricket - Australia". Having a collection of Baggy Greens at this Exhibition fits perfectly with this theme and I do hope the connection that I have for this unique game touches your emotions,”
“I can’t wait for the Ashes to get underway, the rivalry is always fierce and this series will be no different. There is a lot of history that makes up the rivalry, and hopefully the Baggy Greens and photo exhibition will start to build the excitement for fans ahead of the Summer.”
The Exhibition will be open daily from November 17 to December 18 in the lobby of Hyatt Regency Sydney, 161 Sussex Street, Sydney.
