Vintage Dupain

Currently on exhibition at Wallsend District Library

This touring exhibition, first curated and shown at the University Gallery in November 2012, is now on display at Wallsend Disctrict Library.

Vintage Dupain brings together for the first time two glorious collections of forgotten images of wine grape vintages in the Hunter - heart of Australia's wine world in the mid-20th century - by the legendary photographer Max Dupain. Dupain took the photographs on commission as part of his commercial practice, and his skill in capturing the arcadian beauty of the everyday work of vignerons, grape harvesters and cellar hands represents a sublime encounter between the world of art and the world of wine.

See Wallsend District Library for location and opening hours.
