London in the thirties by Bill Brandt( Book )

21 editions published between 1983 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A startling and intimate view of different worlds within London as seen through the eyes and lives of its inhabitants. Ninety-six stunning black and white photographs capture the local lower-class people of East London, the middle-class people of Battersea and Islington and finally the upper-class world of Mayfair and Kensington. Brandt was a master of social realism. He used the camera to capture the poignancy of London life. This book is a vivid and evocative portrait of a city clinging to an old social order, on the brink of the extraordinary upheaval of World War II. -- Publisher 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."--Publisher description
Bill Brandt : behind the camera : photographs 1928-1983 by Bill Brandt( Book )

17 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Universally acknowledged as the greatest British photographer and one of the great masters of all twentieth-century photography, Bill Brandt left an indelible mark on the medium during a career that spanned more than fifty years. Trained in the Paris studio of Man Ray, Brandt returned to England and produced a body of work that ranged from insightful portraits of English upper-crust society to views of the gritty poverty of the industrial north. During the Blitz of World War II, Brandt created an epic picture of blacked-out London, with images of bomb-damaged landmarks such as Saint Paul's Cathedral and residents sheltering in underground subway stations. After the war, he began a series of ninety remarkable nude studies using lens distortions and unusual points of view to interpret the female form in new and exciting ways. At the same time, he photographed the movers and shakers of the English artistic scene, making portraits of everyone from Alec Guinness to David Hockney, and he toured the island nation tracking down landscapes that had been influential to important British writers for a historic series called "Literary Britain.""--Publisher's information

Shadow of light : a collection of photographs from 1931 to the present by Bill Brandt( Book )

11 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light is the first full-scale examination of Brandt's oeuvre that attempts to trace a coherent trajectory across the photographers multifaceted career. With 162 rich duotone reproductions made from the finest of the photographers vintage prints, this book seeks to lay out Brandt's career in all its unruly splendour, as Sarah Hermanson Meister writes in her introductory essay. Meister's fresh scholarship and keen attention to the chronological developments of Brandt's career including, for the first time, an analysis of the dramatic evolution of Brandt's printing techniques shed new light on an artist long considered an enigma by art historians. A comprehensive survey of the work Brandt published during World War II in a number of popular illustrated magazines reveals the origins of some of his most remarkable postwar work, while a technical examination of the photographers often painstaking retouching techniques, accompanied by detailed illustrations, offers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the process that was critical to the ultimate impact of Brandt's extraordinary photographs

9 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A classic collection of photographs from one of England's greatest artists, Bill Brandt. This volume, the first American edition of Brandt's masterwork, consists of 75 images informed by the great heritage of British poetry and prose. Included are photographs of William Wordsworth's room at Dove Cottage, Shaw's Corner, Glamis Castle from Macbeth, and the scene of Oscar WIlde's imprisonment at Reading Gaol. From the brooding beauty of Withens, the house which was the model for Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights, to the Cooling Graveyard from Dickens's Great Expectations, these photographs echo the richness of Britain's literary legacy and the eloquence of Brandt's camera eye"--From publisher description
Photography as art( Visual )

Archival clips of Man Ray, Cindy Sherman, Bill Brandt, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andreas Feininger, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Duane Michals, Richard Avedon, and Elsie Hill are included"--Container
Perspective of nudes by Bill Brandt( Book )

11 editions published in 1961 in English and Undetermined and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The series of nudes that Bill Brandt made between 1947 and 1960--brought to triumph fruition after he acquired an old wide-angle camera--is justly renowned. These startling images rewrote the language of nude photography in not one, but several quarters. Brandt's approach was primarily formal, but his own sensibilities, combined with photography's tendency to overwhelm form's purity with life's impurities, ensured that his nudes are as interesting for their psychological undertones as for the wealth of unexpected forms he conjured. He did so with a camera that was devoid of a practicable viewing mechanism and thus reduced him, in effect, to working by blind instinct. ... Brandt wrote that the photographer must teach himself to see with a child's curiosity, and this would seem to be the key. At close range, his ancient camera yields a Venusian giantism, where sometimes sharply defined, sometimes blurred mountains of flesh loom over the artist/observer. ... It seems fitting that Brandt, the most cosmopolitan of English photographers--Hampstead intellectual, avowed aficionado of Secessionist Vienna, and psychoanalytical subject--should make nudes that are so classically Freudian in character."--The Photobook : A History Volume I / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger.
