The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age’s Good Weekend will feature a special 16-page bushfire wraparound including photos taken by Herald and Age photographers during the current bushfire crisis.

The wraparound, which is on the January 25 issue, has images taken by photographers such as Kate Geraghty, Nick Moir, Wolter Peeters, Justin McManus, Alex Ellinghausen and Eddie Jim.

Good Weekend is all about delivering stories on what’s important to Australians – and right now there is nothing more important than the bushfires sweeping our beautiful country,” said Good Weekend editor Katrina Strickland.

“Staff photographers from The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have been covering the crisis all summer and their pictures really are worth a thousand words. Our 16-page wraparound uses their work to tell a story of what’s been lost, the human and animal suffering amid the devastation, and the amazing work of those who put themselves in the line of fire, literally, on behalf of us all.”

The special presentation features an essay written by Good Weekend’s Konrad Marshall, featuring interviews with fire experts such as CEO of the Bushfire and Natural Hazard Cooperative Research Centre, Richard Thornton, and the Herald and Age photographers documenting the fires on the frontline.

“Piecing together what we’ve lost – adding and multiplying the devastating data – will take months, years. Until that cruel calculus is counted and considered, imagery can tell the stories,” writes Marshall.

Fine art prints of some of the photographs featured in the wraparound will be available for purchase through The Store, with profits to be donated to NSW RFS, CFA VIC and WIRES.
