Bill Brandt was born in Germany, and moved to England when he was around 30 years old. He began documenting British people, at a time when this wasn’t a common way to make photographs, and published two books in the 1930s. He then went on to shoot photos for popular magazines, and became one of the greatest British photographers.
This book, Bill Brandt: Shadow & Light (Amazon.com, Amazon UK) is a retrospective of his work.
