When:Opening 2pm Saturday 8 February until 14 March 2020
Nick Moir’s exhibition, The Burning, is a collection of large format photographs taken during the fire crisis in NSW.
Moir has spent 25 years photographing extreme weather events alongside his role as photographer at The Sydney Morning Herald. He has covered several of the worst fire seasons Australia has seen in addition to: dust storms, thunder storms, floods and droughts. Moir has also undertaken six storm chasing expeditions in the US.
Through his work he endeavours to capture these various weather phenomena as living entities, some only living a few hours, in the case of storms, and others over months and years, for fires and droughts.
Moir’s self-taught severe weather meteorology skills come into play during fires as he tries to predict which blazes will explode and move.
Nick is also a father of four and lives with his partner on Sydney’s northern beaches where he rarely swims because the sharks will probably get him.
