The year 2004 marked the centenary of Bill Brandt, one of the foremost photographers of the 20th century. In celebration, the Victoria and Albert Museum held a major retrospective exhibition of Brandt's work.
This small gift book, Brandt Icons, is published by the Bill Brandt Archive as its own centenary tribute to the work of a great artist. Containing thirty of the most famous of Brandt's images, beautifully presented, this book will be the best possible way to be introduced to his work and enjoy and understand the artistry Brandt employed in every genre: photojournalism, the nude, landscape, the urban scene and the portrait. Each selected photograph is beautifully displayed and printed in this gem of a publication, a fitting tribute to a master photographer.
