During three years David Moore documented the entire construction process of Sydney's cable-stay Glebe Island Bridge (now known as the Anzac Bridge). In this book he explores some of the subjects he feels most passionate about: the aesthetics of man-made forms; the integrity of labour; and the beauty of Sydney Harbour. An essay by the curator of engineering design at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, explains the ambitious engineering science involved in this project. AUTHOR: David Moore 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. Moore commenced his professional photographic career in Sydney with Russell Roberts' studio in 1947. Later he worked with Max Dupain before travelling to London in 1951. He was the first Australian photojournalist to work consistently for the international picture magazines during their heyday in the 1950s. From the 1970s onwards Moore was based in Sydney and here his work reflected his views of Australia. His photographs have been published in many books and are in many Australian collections including those of the Australian National Gallery. Collections are also held at the New York Museum of Modern Art, Le Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC.
