Mark Strizic was a 20th-century Croatian-Australian photographer who was best known for his architectural and industrial photography, and is acknowledged as one of the pioneers of modernism in Australian photography. Strizic worked closely with Robin Boyd and his architectural firm Grounds, Romberg and Boyd (1953-1962), and similar to Boyd’s controversial social commentary in his book The Australian Ugliness, Strizic’s photography illustrated Australian’s national identity crisis.
