Description

With a career spanning nearly half a century, Bill Brandt was a master of several major genres of photography: photojournalism, portraiture, the nude and landscapes. At first glance, Brandt's genres may appear unrelated, but when analysing his career in its entirety, a common theme comes to the forefront: what psychologist Sigmund Freud and philosopher Eugenio TrĂ­as called 'the sinister.' From his earliest photographs taken as an amateur in the 1930s to his late portraits and studies of the female body, Brandt expresses a fascination with the strange and dark aspects of life that only he can reveal. With 200 photographs from throughout Brandt's career, this book adds a crucial chapter to the analysis of this key figure in 20th-century photography. Bill Brandt is set to become an authoritative retrospective.
