    Figures on the Beach,1952 by Max Dupain.
    SignificanceCelebrated photographer Max Dupain turned his camera on the beach to create some of Australia's most enduring images of sunbathers, surf lifesavers and swimmers.
    Dupain preferred black and white photography to capture the dazzling light and colour of the Australian seaside.
    He was a leading figure of the modernist New Photography movement in the 1930s and pursued a life long fascination with extremes of light, perspective and its relationship to form.
