    1 thought on “Bill Brandt

    1. Brandt's work ranged from reportage to nudes and landscape photography and this book contains a good selection of his work. His work was often more surrealistic and cinematic in style than that of his contemporaries. It is also fantastic in terms of composition in my opinion.A useful introduction provides the context of his work and explains his life history. A great book overall, but a minor flaw was the captions on photos 32 and 33 which are incorrectly placed.

    2. This overview of Brandt's work is thoughtfully assembled. The selected works will be familiar to anyone who knows his work. A short read but packed with information. Honestly it helped me better understand some if his photographic choices. I particularly enjoyed the Henry Moore connection (or assumed connection) and some his nudes.
