Notes

This object is part of the Bruno Benini photography archive which was acquired by the Powerhouse Museum with the assistance of the Australian Government's National Cultural Heritage Account in 2009.

If Bruno Benini particularly liked a shot he'd taken, he would make a print or as Hazel Benini recalled, 'create a blow-up and then put it up on his studio wall'. The walls of the studio foyer were covered with these, mostly 20 x 24 inch, prints. Some of the prints were damaged over the years and thrown out, however many remain, with corner pin holes intact. This is one of those prints.

The Benini archive contains photographs showing how the Benini's displayed these prints in the foyer of the studio.

One of a series published in the Sunday Observer, 7 February 1971, 'EVERYBODY'S DOING IT...', directed by Helen Homewood, photographed by Bruno Benini. Smoking accessories available at Alexander's. Double page spread promoting smoking accessories.
