Head Harbourside for this exhibition of photographs documenting the global water crisis

From China to India, Nigeria and Brazil, American photographer Mustafah Abdulaziz has been photographing the social and environmental impact of the global water crisis since 2011. His long term project Water Stories is a collaboration with Earthwatch, WaterAid and and the World Wildlife Fund, and is planned to run until 2026.

"The idea is to look at the issues of water, not only as a resource but as a concept," says Abdulaziz. "Across the planet, we're seeing a lot of our issues reflected in the resource of water."

A selection of large-scale photographs from the project will be displayed on lightboxes along the harbour front within Sydney's Royal Botanic Garden. After sunset, the gallery will be illuminated.

The best entrance point for visitors wanting to check out the outdoor exhibition is the Queen Elizabeth II Gate, just off the Sydney Opera House forecourt.
