Photographer and journalist Bill Brandt is considered Britain’s most widely recognized photographer of his time. His work not only poetic resonance but are also replete with important social commentary. Often using wide angle lenses and employing distortion, Brandt crafted powerful and dynamic landscapes. He was, however, most celebrated for his portraiture and nudes. He published three major books in the post war period that solidified his reputation: Literary Britain (1948), Perspective of Nudes (1961) and Shadow of Light (1966).
