Max Dupain

Max Dupain, 1911 - 1992 is Australia's most renowned photographer. He was born in Sydney and lived there all his life. He photographed the city from the late 1930s through just before his death in 1992. He rarely traveled to other countries and was mostly interested in documenting the architecture, the landscape, the beaches and the cities of Australia.

His photographs define beach culture and show the typical lifestyle of this great country. His most famous photograph is The Sunbaker from 1937.

I love his work and since Australia is my second home, I wanted to share this extraordinary work from this outstanding photographer.

More of Max's work is to find on his website.
