Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light
Description
Bill Brandt was the preeminent British photographer of the twentieth century and a founding father of photography's modernist tradition. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light presents the photographer's entire oeuvre, with special emphasis on his investigation of English life in the 1930s and his innovative late nudes. It is the first full scale examination of Brandt's work that attempts to trace a coherent trajectory across the photographer's multifaceted career.

Rich tritone illustrations highlight the special characteristics of Brandt's prints, and an essay by Sarah Hermanson Meister, Curator in the Department of Photography at MoMA, sets Brandt's life and work in the context of twentieth-century photographic history. Lee Ann Daffner, the Museum's Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Conservator of Photographs, contributes an illustrated glossary of Brandt's retouching techniques, enhancing the appreciation of his printing processes. The book also includes a generously illustrated appendix of Brandt's photo-stories published during the Second World War, clarifying the photographer's career as never before.
