This year's exhibition of the best images by Sydney Morning Herald photographers includes archival images that take you on a historical journey through Sydney. 

Celebrate the keen observations and artistic eye of generations of Sydney Morning Herald photographers who have captured the enduring heart and spirit of the Harbour City – its heritage, its beauty, its diversity, its hard edges and its humour.

Our individual sense of Sydney is shaped by our own experiences. But regardless of where we were born, our stories of living here become part of this place that is celebrated the world over. For nearly two centuries Australia’s oldest continuously published newspaper has created a record of these stories, and the Photos1440 exhibition puts the most compelling moments on show through published and unpublished images. 

In presenting this exhibition, we acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, the traditional custodians of this place we now call Sydney.
