– Dupain & still life photography –

Dupain was drawn to still life photography throughout his life, from experimenting with solarisation of flowers in the 1930s, capturing seashells in situ or back in the studio in the 1950s and 60s, to night-time photos of flowers in the 1970s and 80s. It was a form of contemplative practice to understand the most effective lighting and angles to record still life.

The images beneath are a small sample of the many thousands of photographs he took from the 1930s to the 1980s. But these are some of his most loved images, and most well-known. They are available as a fine art digital print (in various sizes), and a select few are also available as hand printed Limited Edition prints (production limited to 90 on 16×20″ Ilford paper). To enquire about the size options and prices, just click on the enquiry button in the pop-up enlarged image box.

WARNING: The negatives from which the prints are produced via a digitised scan are up to 90 years old. As a result of aging of the film and/or handling and storage of the negatives over those years, there are often blemishes, scratches across the surface of the negatives. We have made digital enhancments to the digitised images to offer clients a reasonable and/or high quaity finish (close to 100% of images are offered with no or few insignificant blemishes).

We have been selling these digital fine art prints without complaint, mostly, for over 20 years. So while they are of excellent quality, we do not offer refunds for reason of ‘imperfections’ or slight blemishes. Purchasers should be aware of this prior to purchase. Prints are offered in their best possible reproduction quality.
