From his earliest photographs he strove to transform the naked human body into something resembling the marble forms of antiquity. Women, especially, were often rendered as triumphantly sensual yet naturalistic, as if the sculptor Bernini had suddenly picked up a camera.” Ref: Robert McFarlane, “Max Dupain – Modernist”, SMH, 27.6.2007.
