Since opening in 1973, the Opera House has entertained audiences in excess of 65 million. This year, the Sydney Opera House will celebrate four decades as an eminent national building and a valuable piece of cultural and tourism infrastructure.

David Moore (1927-2003) was Australia’s most renowned and widely travelled photojournalist. His extraordinary archive covers both his homeland and the many countries and subjects he visited over a sixty-year career.

From 1962-1979, Moore photographed the construction of the Opera House. His Opera House series taken from his extraordinary archival body of work will be shown at Customs House from mid-October through to mid-November to commemorate the development of this iconic building as well as Moore’s photographic legacy.
