Description

Few photographers have spanned the genres from photojournalism to true artistic endeavour as completely as Bill Brandt. Yet Brandts journalism was never strictly reportage: all his work reflected a clear artistic purpose. His qualities as an artist, recognized by all his peers as outstanding, were never better expressed than in his series of nudes, photographed in the studio and on location over a period of thirty-five years. He published that work in two justly famous books: "Perspective of Nudes" (1961) and "Bill Brandt Nudes" (1980). Now, for the first time, the oeuvre has been brought together within a single volume in this beautifully presented book: "Brandt Nudes: A New Perspective", previously published only as a limited edition.
