Boys playing cricket at the beach, Melbourne, 1946

Photograph by Max Dupain of boys playing cricket at the beach, Melbourne, 1946

Dupain often used a low viewpoint to distort the scale in his photographs. By photographing from ground level, the wicketkeeper and batsman in the foreground are emphasised relative to the fielders in the distance patiently waiting to catch the batsman out.
