5.0 out of 5 stars Super book, 28 May 2013
This review is from: Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light (Hardcover)
In depth study of Brandt's work but a little more serious than the other books. Concentrates more on the scholarly angle and less on the images. The images are printed in a peculiar tritone that brings a strange sepia look to Brandt's work that does not always succeed. For a more complete analysis of Brandt's nudes check out Brandt Nudes by Thames & Hudson. Beautifully printed and bound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light, 25 Feb 2014

This review is from: Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light (Hardcover)
I have seen quite a few examples of this photographers work and enjoy his striking and sometimes moody black and white images. His work covers a wide spectrum including nudes, portraits, street photography, reportage, architecture and landscapes. Included are prints from the thirties, forties and late fifties and some wartime images. I would say he was a humanist given the intimate portraits of celebrities and also workers and children. The street photography is impressive. The prints are dark and contrasty giving us glimpses of worlds long gone. If you are a monochrome fan this is a good buy, the books title says it all.

This review is from: Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light (Hardcover)
I bought this book as I wanted to study the great photographers whole catalogue of works, from beginnings to his last works. The book is well researched, with many tri-tone plates which I thought were fine, even if perhaps as one reviewer alluded to; they are warmer in tone than the prints I've seen in the flesh...particularly the great exhibition at the V&A many years ago.
What I found worked well in this book was the information about Brandt and his development as a photographer, his printing techniques and his work as published in various magazines. There is lots to savour here and for a really bargain price.
Perspective on Nudes may hold his most famous work and may well be another volume worth own but for anyone who wants an overview of his career, with plenty to look at and well written text to illuminate each section then this is worth buying.k

Bought as a gift for a keen photographer.
It was a hit, the photographs included are lovey; exactly as the book title says, all about shadow and light...lovely.

This review is from: Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light (Hardcover)
This is the definitive book of Bill Brandt images.
The diversity and quality of the plates is sublime, with fantastic reproduction quality, all capturing the beauty of Brandt's monochrome images from another time, in a very elegant and perfectly finished volume.
Simply, quite beautiful.
