The Art of Max Dupain

Maxwell Spencer Dupain (4 April 1911 – 27 July 1992) was a renowned Australian modernist photographer. During World War II Dupain served with the Royal Australian Air Force in both Darwin and Papua New Guinea helping to create camouflage. In the 1950s the advent of the new consumerism meant that there was plenty of promotional photography for advertising and he attracted clients from magazines, advertising agencies and industrial firms. In between this he devoted time to pursue his love of architecture, and began architectural photography, which he continued most of his life.
