In the midst of a spring cleaning frenzy the other day I stumbled across a few pages that I had torn from an Australian Vogue feature on Australian beach culture (I can’t remember what issue exactly but it would have been from around the mid 2000s). The feature showcased a range of photographs from more notable names such as Helmut Newton, but my favourites were these taken by Laurence Le Guay. I hadn’t previously heard of Le Guay and a quick google search didn’t turn up much up other than that he was Sydney’s leading fashion photographer in the 1950s and 1960s and also served as a war photographer during WWII. While these photos were taken back in the 1950s, what with the current trend for vintage silhouettes, they barely look out of place today.
