The State Library of NSW has 2 million photographs in its collection. A current exhibition, entitled Shot, presents just 400, which are arranged chronologically from the 1840s to the present. When we visited today I was attracted to this well-known and widely reproduced 1937 work by Max Dupain called Sunbaker. Wikipedia says that this iconic photograph has been described as "quintessentially Australian", a "sort of icon of the Australian way of life", and is "arguably the most widely recognised of all Australian photographs”.
