Bill Brandt

Photography by Bill Brandt

Fans of René Magritte will appreciate the work by Bill Brandt. Bill Brandt (1904-1983) was one of the most influential British photographers of the 20th century. Whether Bill Brandt was taking pictures of London streets during the blackout or sleepers in the Underground during the Blitz; coal miners or high society in pre-war Britain; moody, pared-down landscapes or elegant abstracted nudes, he always imbued his photographs with strangeness and mystery, with a surrealist touch, with rich connotations. Bill Brandt's captivating high-contrast nudes-on-gravel-beach photographs are truly remarkable and are a feast for the eyes.
