Max Dupain

Max Dupain (1911-1992) is one of Australia's most revered photographers. His work has been collected by most of the major galleries around Australia and as well by private collectors world-wide.

Born in Sydney, he lived there all his life, photographing the city from the late 1930s through to just before his death in 1992. There were a few sojourns to other countries, Paris in 1988 to photograph the Seidler Australian Embassy but mostly he was interested in photographing the architecture, the landscape, the beaches and the cities of Australia. For many Australians, Dupain's photographs define beach culture, and it was the beach that was the inspiration for his most famous and enduring images. The Sunbaker, At Newport and Bondi all capturing that decisive moment.
