An Australian photographer has captured life aboard some of the world’s greatest cruise liners. Sydney-based James Morgan had just 175 hours last year to capture Cunard’s Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth across the oceans for an exhibition that takes you behind-the-scenes for the company’s 175th anniversary.
The 70 photographs in the OneSevenFive exhibition, which can be seen for free on the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House until Thursday, March 19, range from the serving of afternoon tea in Queen Mary 2’s ballroom to the storing of ropes below decks, as well as images taken during the trio’s visits to Sydney Harbour.
The final two shots were taken last Friday when the Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria had their first rendezvous together in Sydney.
Morgan said that it was his favourite assignment in 30 years of photography around the globe.
“Nothing excites me as much as hanging out of a helicopter and seeing Queen Mary 2 sailing towards me,” he said.
You can until Thursday evening to see the photos at the Opera House, but if you miss them, here’s a sample.
