Artist's Biography

"Photography is still a very new medium and everything must be tried and dared... photography has no rules. It is not a sport. It is the result which counts, no matter how it is achieved." So said Bill Brandt. Having apprenticed to Man Ray, Brandt originally began his career working as a photojournalist on assignment. His photography was a singular and idiosyncratic mixture of straight reportage with a consistent, if subtle, streak of strangeness - the legacy of surrealism. He would eventually turn from “straight” photography, so dominant in the post-war culture of the time, towards abstracted images in which figures were distorted or wide-angle lenses used. Highly respected for the intensity and power of his images, Brandt is considered one of the preeminent photographers to have emerged in England.
