  • ADMINISTRATIVE/ BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY

    The "Vandyke Album" is of exceptional importance in Australia's photographic history. It gives context to Australia's most iconic photograph, The Sunbaker. Dupain's preferred version had clasped hands. The sole print of this version is in this album and the negative is lost. There are thought to be about 200 signed prints of the better known version where the right hand lies with fingers extended on the sand.
