A very average pocket size publication. Might be ok as a first introduction series. Not overwhelmed! Might be better to pay more for a superior book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A personal eye-opener 29 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Thanks to a photographic club to which I once belonged, I was able to meet Bill Brandt on at least four occasions and was twice able to see some of his prints at very close range and to handle them. The first was when he gave a lecture about his portraiture although a small number of his nudes were included, and the second at our annual exhibition and Members' Dinner some time later and where he was offered a panel for a few of his prints. The third was at another photographic club where he was judging their annual exhibition and I was a member's guest, and the last at a Social Club jointly used by an adjacent photographic club and studio (where he photographed most of his nudes and some portraits) and by a small professional theatre where we met by chance; he was a member and I again a member's guest.

As these images are so different than those I knew, most of which were either commissioned or taken for exhibition purposes, I do not and cannot know for what purpose these were taken. It may have been purely private and personal and intended to show Britain's (and sometimes Ireland's) population whilst at war or recovering from it. It appears that the images were informal and not necessarily posed, although some clearly were but intended to appear informal. Other images are either photo-reportage and not a million miles from the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, although it was unlikely that Brandt had any familiarity with HCB's work immediately post-war or earlier, or landscapes which are as far from Brandt's more recognisable images as it is possible to be. The cover image is possibly rather out-of-place in relation to the main body of images. I had seen Brandt's exhibition print of this and is one that is often easily identified.
