InterContinental Sydney has bolstered its reputation as the city’s most iconic hotel, collaborating with Australia’s award-winning photographer Matt Irwin to launch a series of inspired tributes to the world’s most stunning harbour.

“Sydney: A Love Affair” is Matt Irwin’s latest masterpiece of photographic excellence, designed to capture Sydney’s spectacular icons, natural landscapes, streetscapes and legendary destinations from Bondi’s Icebergs to the Queen Victoria Building. A photographic exhibition of Irwin’s “Sydney: A Love Affair” has been curated inside the InterContinental Sydney lobby gallery, and is now open for public display until 5 January 2018, with the book released to coincide with the exhibition.

Recognised as a Sydney icon of its own, InterContinental Sydney has partnered with Matt Irwin to create a special edition coffee table book of “Sydney: A Love Affair,” paying tribute to the hotel’s historical bloodline and highly coveted views of Sydney Harbour from the level 31 Club InterContinental rooftop. The special edition book features a unique cover, designed exclusively for InterContinental Sydney, and an introduction from the hotel’s General Manager, Jörg Böckeler.

Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore officially launched “Sydney: A Love Affair” in the InterContinental Sydney’s iconic lobby gallery on 30 November. In its signature style, over 40 influencers and industry media were suitably welcomed with a bespoke canape selection and drinks menu from Head Bars Manager, John Toubia, before exploring the gallery with special guest Matt Irwin. Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore recognised the significant works and congratulated Matt Irwin on his contribution to celebrating Sydney.

“There’s a certain grandeur I always feel when I visit Sydney: the shorelines, the breathtaking harbour and of course its global icons,” said Matt Irwin. “InterContinental Sydney breathes the embodiment of Sydney – everything from its heritage and architecture to the incredible views – and I knew there was no other place my exhibition belonged.”

Mr Jörg Böckeler, General Manager, InterContinental Sydney said: “It is a marvelous feat to see Sydney’s beauty so carefully captured through art. It gives me great pride to be able to share a special edition of Sydney: A Love Affair with our guests and offer a significant window into the magnificence of Sydney.

There is a great sense of home.”

The photographic exhibition is available to view until 5 January 2018. Matt Irwin’s “Sydney: A Love Affair” is published by Matt Irwin Photography in collaboration with Wilkinson Publishing and retails at $89.99.
