Created with support from acclaimed photographer Trent Parke and Canon Australia, the show presents more than 70 images depicting Steve Waugh’s passion for photography, India and cricket.

Waugh began documenting the lives of locals in India during various trips he undertook over his sporting career, starting in 1986. But he only had a chance to immerse himself in the daily routines of the locals on a personal level in 2020, when ‘The Spirit of Cricket – India’ was born.

The exhibition runs from 31 October until 11 January 2021 at The Playbox, 21 Oxford Street Paddington, and is open Wednesdays to Saturdays between 12:00 and 6:00 pm and Sundays from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

Entry is by gold coin donation to The Steve Waugh Foundation. Bookings are not required but numbers are limited to 10 people in the gallery at one time to adhere to strict social distancing requirements.

The upcoming show coincides with the release of large format photo book of the same title, which contains 220 images.
