Photographer's Note

The original "Sunbaker" is a famous, iconic photograph made by Max Dupain in Australia in 1937.

In 1993 I saw this girl lying on the beach in almost exactly the same pose as Dupain's original. I couldn't resist grabbing the shot. Subsequently in Photoshop, I made a modestly-toned monochrome version of the digitised original transparency.

It's an unashamed copy (I'm not pretending it's a "homage" or anything so pretentious). Whether it's valid to do this, or whether it's a rip-off, or just shows my lack of originality, I'll let you judge...

The original Dupain photograph is here. The model's gender has of course changed!
