Brandt by Bill Jay

Book Description

A comprehensive study of the work of photographer Bill Brandt, and a catalogue to an exhibition at the Barbican Centre in London. Brandt's work falls across a number of categories. He created odd, surrealist compositions, stemming from his early work in Man Ray's Paris studio, as well as telling images conveying social comment on Britain in the 1930s. His intensely dark portrayals of London and the industrial towns of northern England contrast with his softer, even lyrical evocations of landscape. He is perhaps best known for his sequence of ever more abstracted studies of the nude, but his telling portrayals of artists from the same period remain immediate and perceptive decades later. This book explores, on a large scale, all the different aspects of Brandt's work.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Bill Brandt (1904-1983) was one of the most important figures in 20th-century photography - a man whose work ranged from starkly realistic images of industrial labourers to surreal studies of the human body. He has been a crucial influence on subsequent generations of photographers and his reputation continues to grow. This fine book is the first comprehensive study of his multi-faceted work. The breadth and range of Brandt's work defies easy categorization. He created odd, surrealist compositions, stemming from his early work in Man Ray's Paris studio, as well as telling images of Britain in the 1930s. His famous, intensely dark portrayals of London and of industrial towns contrast with his softer, even lyrical evocations of landscape. Perhaps best known for his beautiful sequences of ever more abstracted studies of the nude, his perceptive portraits of artists from the same period retain their immediacy decades later. The book includes 378 photographs from all periods of Brandt's career, and is sure to become the standard work on one of the most significant figures in British photography. (Kirkus UK)
