From the Publisher
Bill Brandt (1904-1983) was one of the century's most important photographers-a man whose work ranged from starkly realistic images of industrial workers to surreal studies of the human body. This is the first comprehensive retrospective on this protean artist. Interpretive essays and 350 of Brandt's finest photographs, reproduced in stunning duotone, illuminate every phase of a long and varied career: his stint as an assistant to Man Ray; his early photojournalism, which shows the influence that Brandt and Brassa had on one another; his dark portraits of England's industrial north; the haunting images of London during the blitz; his evocative series of English literary landscapes; and Brandt's famous abstract nudes. This volume is sure to become the standard reference on a truly great photographer. 350 photographs in duotone, 320 pages, 911/2 x 1111/2" Advertising: Art magazines BILL JAY is professor of photography studies at Arizona State University.
