These photographs of Albury are a small selection of the work undertaken in the area by acclaimed photographer Max Dupain in the late 1930s. They include street scenes captured on the footpath below this gallery, night shots of historic buildings and evocative landscapes of surrounding areas.
Max Dupain is arguably this country’s most celebrated photographer. A number of his works including Meat Queue, At Newport, and Sunbaker have become icons of Australian photography.
These works provide a perspective of Albury through the prism of a master image maker. They also offer a glimpse into a moment in time – over eighty years ago – and highlight how this place has, and hasn’t, changed.
