Bill Brandt, London in the Thirties, First Edition, 1983

$204.71

About

Bill Brandt 'London in the Thirties' is considered a late-modern photography classic. The books consists of his classic photographs first published in magazines and were collected for publication in book form by the photographer, who died just before the book was published. The three sections present London life as experienced by The Poor, The Middle Class, and The Toffs Bill Brandt (1904-1983) was one of the medium's most influential and protean image-makers, a man whose work ranged from starkly realistic images of industrial workers to Surrealist studies of the human body. His career epitomizes the history of modern photography itself: A stint as an assistant to Man Ray; early photojournalism, which shows the influence that Brandt and Brassai had on one another; dark portraits of England's industrial North; haunting images of London during the Blitz; evocative series of English landscapes; and abstract nudes. Published by Gordon Fraser, London 1983. First Edition hardback in dust jacket. 96pp.
