  • General note

    In 1997 architect Harry Seidler recalled Max Dupain taking this photograph, often described as the `key hole shot': `... he picked that [shot] totally - I thought [we'd shoot it] from the Plaza to explain the whole thing ... Max's shot is fantasic I think, the way he gets that gradation of the light and to extract the most out of an object, rather than purely telling an architectural story ... the abstract compositional aspect - that was his artistry.' -- Exhibition caption, 1997
