[Solarised Candle With Reflection]

c1930s/1980s. Silver gelatin photograph, signed in pencil lower right, 45.5 x 37.7cm. Minor developing flaws. Framed.

Dupain was inspired to experiment with different printing techniques, including solarisation, by American photographer Man Ray (1890–1976). In its 2004 exhibition Max Dupain: Dupain’s work in the context of Man Ray’s influence, the Art Gallery of NSW stated “Max Dupain, one of Australia’s great modernist photographers, placed Man Ray’s importance for photography alongside Cézanne’s for painting. Writing for The Home magazine in 1935, Dupain said: ‘He is alone. A pioneer of the 20th century who has crystallised a new experience in light and chemistry.’” Ref: AGNSW.
