Max Dupain – Title page (candle) , from the album Photographs by Max Dupain 1930s circa 1930

« Max Dupain découvre la photographie à l’âge de 13 ans et gagne à 17 ans le « Carter Memorial Prize for Productive Use of Spare Time « [pour l’usage productif du temps libre].

Il rejoint en 1929 la Photographic Society of New South Wales et commence en 1930 sa carrière photographique comme apprenti dans l’atelier de Cecil Bostock à Sydney. En 1934 Dupain se met à son compte en ouvrant son propre studio, sur la Bond Street à Sydney.

Son approche est d’abord pictorialiste, mais très influencé par le mouvement allemand de la « Nouvelle objectivité », il délaisse les sujets romantiques et s’oriente vers le monde contemporain, ses hommes et leurs réalisations. Il devient ainsi l’un des pionniers de la photographie moderne en Australie. Son sujet de prédilections à cette époque est industrie et tout ce qui s’y rapporte et qu’il traite dans un style radicalement différent : des lumières plus brutales et des formes bien découpées. Ses photographies sont publiées dans des revues telles que The home ou Art in Australia.

Il est influencé , comme tant d’autres, par certains photographes européens tel que  Man Ray et par le mouvement surréaliste qui se développe à cette époque.

En 1937, alors qu’il est sur la côte des Nouvelles Galles du Sud::: (galerie de photographies avec le lien) , il prend une photo de la tête et des épaules de son ami Harold Savage allongé sur le sable de la plage de Cullburra Beach. Cette photographie intitulée Sunbaker deviendra une de ses plus célèbres de ses clichés.

En 1938, Dupain participe à la création du Contemporary Camera Group, une association qui s’oppose au mouvement pictorialiste alors largement dominant en Australie. En 1939, il épouse Olive Cotton, une autre photographe, mais ils divorcent peu de temps après.

Pendant la seconde guerre mondiale, Dupain s’ engage dans la Royal Australian Air Force, il sert dans les Territoires du Nord ainsi qu’en Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée, où il participe à la réalisation de camouflages. Très affecté par la guerre, il essaie par la suite de trouver une vision de la vérité dans un travail plus documentaire et en 1945, il travaille pour le compte de l’État australien sur un projet de promotion de son pays.


il reprend à partir de 1947 ses activités de studio mais abandonne ce qu’il appelle cosmetic lie of fashion photography or advertising illustration, autrement dit « le mensonge cosmétique de la photographie de mode et de l’illustration publicitaire ».
La photographie moderne, dit-il, doit faire plus que distraire, Elle doit inciter à réfléchir et ce, en montrant clairement les aspects de la Réalité, visant une meilleure compréhension des Hommes et des Femmes, de ce qu’ils vivent et créent».

En 1947, Dupain épouse Diana Illingworth dont il a une fille, Danina, et un fils, Rex, qui devint lui aussi photographe.Le travail documentaire de cette période est bien représenté par la photographie The meat queue, qui date de 1946. Le style naturaliste est bien expliqué par Dupain : « enregistrer un instant de la vie quotidienne vaut mieux que tenter un commentaire sociologique ».

Dupain travaille ensuite pour l’Université des Nouvelles Galles du Sud et fait de nombreux voyages dans l’Australie du Nord, à l’intérieur des terres et sur la côte. Dès 1947 mais surtout dans les années 1950, l’arrivée de la société de consommation lui donne l’occasion de réaliser de nombreuses photographies publicitaires et de travailler pour des magazines, des agences de publicité et des société industrielles. Cependant, il se tournera définitivement vers l’architecture, domaine auquel il se consacre à temps plein pendant près de 30 ans, produisant à partir des années 1960 des images de plus en plus abstraites.Cette activité de photographe d’architecture dure jusqu’à sa mort, survenue en 1992

En 1954, il devient membre du groupe des VI et il sera un peu plus tard affilié au Royal Australian Institute of Architects.

Je vais maintenant poster des photographies qui datent des années 1930’s au années 1980’s, par thématiques. je ne couvrirais pas la photographie d’architecture ni les phorographies sur les peuples indgènes. ce n’est pas l’objet de mon blog. mais vous pouvez les retrouver très aisement.

John Everard

John Everard est un photographe anglais autodidacte de renommée internationale notamment pour son travail sur les formes féminines dans le style dit « art déco ». Sa carrière s’est déroulée entre la fin des années 20 et les début des années 60. Il a partagé à Londres un studio à Londres avec deux autres photographes renommés : Walter Bird   ( Voir l’article Ici)   et Horace Roye (voir l’article Ici). Il a été acclamé et publié très tôt dans sa carrière.  Tout comme ses acolytes, il a produit de nombreux ouvrages tels que » Portrait of a Model »  Londres George Routledge & Sons Ltd. 1939 ( Ltd étant la maison d’édition crée par roye Bird et lui même),  « Judgement of Paris, French nudes », ed° George Routledge, London, 1941, « Life line » Ltd., London,  1936, « Oriental Model » Published by Robert Hale Ltd., London  1955, » Adams Fifth Rib » ,Ltd., London 1936 , pour ne citer qu’eux, puisque ceux sont ces derniers que je vous présente aujourd’hui. J’ai scanné des  livres, mais peu de planches car au vu de l’utilisation et du respect qu’il existe sur le net, je ne fais plus don de photos provenant de livre à 1000 euros… ainsi que celles qu’on ne trouve pas sur le net.. le reste se trouve, sans être bien sur attribué au bon livre et souvent avec des dates et titres erronés même pour les galeries et sites de ventes aux enchères, comme Walter Bird d’ailleurs et de surcroit toute avec un tirage de négatifs rayés.

La trilogie des ces merveilleux anglais que j’affectionne particulièrement se termine donc . Ils sont à mes yeux ce que František Drtikol est à la photographie Tchèque, ce que  József Pécsi est à la photographie Hongroise, des grands maîtres de la lumière de la mise en scène, et des formidables amoureux de la femme, proposant des photographies d’elles sans aucune vulgarité, avec une délicatesse infinie.

Horace Roye-Narberth (1906 – 2002 )

Horace Roye-Narberth  The « Welsh Maid » , 1942  The « Irish Maid » London , 1941, The « Scottish Maid » , 1941,The « English Maid »,1939 ed° G.Routledge & Sons

Horace Roye-Narberth, plus communément connu sous le nom d’artiste Roye, fut l’un des pionniers photographes britanniques du 20e siècle,  célèbre pour ses nus et des photos de starlettes et notamment pour celle ci Tomorrow’s crucifixion , d’un tout autre genre.

A partir de 1938, Roye produit une succession d’études sur le nu féminin.publiées sous forme de petits livrets  comme ceux  qui vous sont présentés aujourd’hui, véritable ôde à la beauté féminine et sa nudité.  The Welsh Maid, The Irish Maid , The Scottish MaidThe English MaidThe Irish Maid, qui ont tous trouvés une  extrême popularité, en particulier pendant la guerre. Ces photographies sont prises en bord de mer où à la campagne, pour chaque livret, les mises en scène sont les mêmes. La plage, sur la mer, dans un près, dans un verger, dans les rochers…

Ces livrets ne sont qu’un tout petit aspect de son large travail, reste à son actif bien plus de publications, et comme il aimait à le dire, Roye a vu passer plus 10.000 femmes nues à travers l’objectif.  Il a également  travaillé pour le cinéma . Il était ami et collaborateur avec Walter Bird  ( Voir l’article Ici) et John Everard ( Voir l’article Ici) , qui tout comme lui sont des grands noms de la photographie de nu des années 1930-1940. avec lesquels il a publié notament Eves without leaves . Ils ont crée en ensemble les editions LTD .

Pour la petite anecdocte,  Il a été poursuivi pour avoir refusé de passer de l’aérographe sur les poils pubiens d’une photo, mais  al a réussi à se défendre en justice et avaoir gain de cause, arguant que la représentation de la beauté ne doit pas être entravée par la pruderie.

Je ne vous présente pas toutes les planches de chaque livret mais une sélection, et je ne vous les présente pas non plus dans l’ordre d’apparition  (Les teintes de tirage varient selon le livret , je n’ai rien changé, même si le dernier tire beaucoup sur le jaune, et un peu trop à mon goût….) . vous pouvez retrouvez ces planches sur des sites d’enchères en tirage noir et blanc)

Walter Bird (England, 1903 – 1969)

Walter Bird est un des photographes  Anglais les plus reconnus pour ses images exceptionnelles du nu féminin de ce qu’on nomme  « style art déco ». Bien qu’ayant  d’abord été formé en tant que peintre, il est venu rapidement à la photographie . C’est un véritable  maître de la lumière et de la composition, et ses  études de nus  étaient et sont toujours  bien connue à la fois pour le théâtralisme et la beauté artistique, sûrement dû en définitive à sa formation initiale la peinture.
Durant les années 1930 – 1940, Bird  avec  ses amis et collaborateurs John Everard  ( Article Ici ) et Horace Roye ( Article ici ) ont  produit  les meilleures photographies
du nu féminin de toute l’Angleterre.  Walter Bird est surtout connu pour son livre  Beauty’s Daughters, paru en 1938 pourtant,  mais il a aussi sorti Beauty’s Self , et …qui sont aussi de très belles études de nus.
Bird utilisait  le tirage Photo-encre  (ce qui est similaire à la  gravure ou  photogravure), tout comme ses contemporains, mais aussi les tirages  de gélatine argentique.
Les photographies aujourdhui présentées utilisent les deux techniques, (vous verrez la différence tout de suite)  , et proviennent de plusieurs livres, »
Beauty’s Daughters  » Ed ° John Long Limited, Londres, 1938 48 photogravures, »Beauty’s Self »   John Long Limited, of London,1940,  « Eves without Leaves »  par Walter Bird, Horace Roye et John Everard, Ed Arthur Person LTD 19415 Troisème ed) ,   (l’anecdote de ce livre, d’ une part  Ils se sont  regroupés afin de neâs  se faire concurrence, Mais il est ecrit dans l’avant-propos assez amusant rédigé par Reginald Arkell, rédacteur en chef du Magazine Only Men, que l’objectif du livre était de remonter le moral des troupes de combat de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Il a été edité en taille de poche et republié  » fois en une années tant il a eu du succès. On y retrouve des clichés dejà paru dans des  livres individuels de chaque auteur, ( pour Bird c’est Beauty’s Daughters, Pour Roye  Les » Mermaids » c’est  et Everard « Life Line »  ) 

vous pouvez trouvez ces photos sur le net, mais sans les credits et les livres qont ils sont tirés, ou encore mieux , avec un tirage de négatifs rayés.
