Did you know the famous Australian photographer Max Dupain did a La Perouse image series in the 1950s?

Join Alana Strong, curator of this exhibition, on a tour exploring the Dupain images of this amazing suburb and its people.

Max Dupain was famous for his uber-modern, bold, almost heroic images of Australia's landscapes and architecture. But he was also a commercial enterprise, and undertook assignments from both civic and commercial patrons.

Alana has selected some of the La Perouse collection that most reflect Dupain's striking aesthetic, as well as record lost moments in La Perouse's history.
