Editorial Reviews

From Bookforum

Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light draws on MoMA’s recently acquired cache of vintage photographs by the British prince of darkness. Perfectly set by designer Beverly Joel on pages whose 87⁄8 x 101⁄2" trim mimics the characteristic proportions of Brandt’s photos, the reproductions, from superb tritone separations by Martin Senn, are a revelation. Familiar 1930s images yield new depth and detail, and the famous postwar nudes, especially those seen close-up on rocky beaches from the late 1950s, become luminous abstract sculptures. —Christopher Lyon

Review

In contrast to an alternate new book of Brandt's nudes, this volume shows his full range, including studies of working-class Londoners in the 1930s and surreal French landscapes in the 1950s. (Jack Crager American Photo 2013-11-01)

British photographer Bill Brandt, who died in 1983, has been one of the most published of his generation. The bibliography is significant and the authors varied, but the reproductions of the images have remained largely the same - pictures of England's upper and lower classes, landscape, portraits (especially authors), and studies of the female nude. (C. Bunnell CHOICE 2013-08-01)

This survey takes a long-overdue, in-depth look at one of the true giants of modern photography. (Howard Halle TIME OUT 2013-07-18)

In this book I personally found appreciation of the wide diversity of his work. It covers themes of a wide variety and his mastery of all is exceptional. It is impossible to choose between this book and his book on nudes. Some of his work on nudes is also captured in this book but to limited extent. It is a book which I will recommend to anyone who likes variety in themes but consistency in craftmanship.

The insightful essay's and the reproduction make this a must have book on a photographer that has not had the recognition he deserves. I was introduced to his work by a calender produced by Ilford and then undertook research at the V&A print collection which has some wonderful prints.The book is a gem!
