Definately one of my favorites- Max Dupain Sunbaker look out

The sun bathers on bondi beach sum it up for me , while this image is fond to my identity , its also a distinctive portait of a famous beach and its inhabitants. I also love this image because its a modern and more urban rendition of Max Dupains Sunbaker -

the notes from the Australia National Gallery for Sunbaker are below and Sam has given these notes new and modern perspective .

Sunbaker was taken while he was on holiday at Culburra, on the New South Wales South Coast, in 1937, a year of popular optimism before the War.

The sunbaker is completely relaxed and at one with the land. He lies with his back exposed to the sun, seawater and sweat sparkling on his skin. Dupain used a low-angle shot, which transforms the simple shapes of the man?s oval head and triangular torso into a mountain-like outcrop set against the horizon.

This image was inspired by the work of European modernist photographers, who were more interested in exploring abstract form than in making descriptive photographs.

Sunbaker has become a national image. The classical simplicity of the figure replaces the cliches of athletic masculine imagery.
