Albert and Barbara Tucker Gallery, Heide Museum of Modern Art

25 March to 9 September 2012

Curators: Sue Cramer and Linda Michael

Albert Tucker (1914–1999) photographed the people and places around him as a personal record—only later at the suggestion of others were these images printed for public display, revealing him as a fine photographer, an ‘accidental historian’ of the Heide circle and other artist communities in the late 1930s to mid-1940s in Melbourne. Though unposed and using available light, his photographs of artists, family and friends reveal a keen eye for composition and dramatic, even cinematic, use of light and shade.
