Brave New World, 1938/later printing. Silver gelatin photograph montage, signed and dated "1938" in ink on image lower right, 29 x 20cm. Framed.
Variant image held in NGA, with the date "1935" and comment "...The title of the work refers to [Aldous] Huxley's dystopian novel Brave New World (1932), in which human reproduction and life itself are tightly controlled by a global government. Dupain was sympathetic to the book's warning about the loss of individuality and human agency at the hands of industrialism. What is particularly compelling about this image is the way that, as in Huxley's book, photography itself is understood as potentially an oppressive tool of the state. The naked woman is literally controlled by photographic technology: physically constrained by the camera's technical apparatus, her image is embedded in a range of photographic printing processes."
