Photo of the day – Sydney Opera House sail and cloud






Powerhouse Museum – Sydney







This minimalist, graphic image of one of the sails of the Sydney Opera House was photographed for our new exhibition on modernism in Australia. The Musuem photographers have been experimenting with photographing some of the classic city sites that have been important in the modernist era. Danish architect Jørn Utzon designed the Sydney Opera House after he won a competition in 1957 after submitting preliminary sketches.
