“Sunbaker” (1937), the photograph taken by Max Dupain, is an iconic image. The digger lieing on the beach; suntanned, strong, robust and the embodiment of Australian manhood; the epitome of national identity and the benchmark for male resilience. The subject’s portrayal of the ideal man, both tough and unemotional.
“Sunbaker 2.0” recreates the original image for today, the body is much more muscular, tattooed and a hypermasculine, turbo charged version of its predecessor. The image is crafted to reflect upon the changes in masculinity since the original.details:Materials: Set of 4 Digital Metallic Prints, Edition of 10
