Celebrity talk: Max Dupain
Rex Dupain in conversation with Nell Schofield
Max Dupain is one of the leading figures of 20th-century Australian photography.
His son Rex Dupain joins us to share memories of his late father. Hear Rex reminisce about when Max left for the 1978 trip to Paris which resulted in the Paris ‘private’ series of photographs, on display in the exhibition Max Dupain: the Paris 'private’ series and other pictures.
Rex will also share how his early exposure to photography has led to his own photographic career. Rex’s work has been exhibited internationally and widely around Australia and is held in several collections, including at the Australian Museum and the National Portrait Gallery. In a recent exhibition Lovers and soldiers at Josef Lebovic Gallery, Rex drew inspiration from old photographs taken by Max that he had only just discovered.
Rex will be joined by presenter, actor and director Nell Schofield. As well as writing and presenting on television and radio, Nell was a board member for Object: Australian Design Centre. She sits on the board for the Sydney Festival and is the Sydney campaign coordinator at Lock the Gate Alliance.
