Bill Brandt (1904-1983) is widely regarded as Britain’s most important 20th century photographer, and he is the first photographer to be commemorated with the prestigious English Heritage Blue Plaque Award. A major retrospective at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London in 2004 celebrated his centenary. His extensive body of work, ranging realism and social commentary to surrealism to pure abstraction, is a diverse portrait of social life in Britain. Brandt's career began in 1929 as an assistant to the Surrealist artist and photographer Man Ray in Paris. In the early 1930's, Brandt established his reputation as a pioneering photojournalist working in London as a freelance photographer for illustrated magazines documenting culture and social life in Britain. Brandt's postwar work reflected his Surrealist interests, and he concentrated on images of female nudes using extreme wide angle lenses and depth of focus to create distorted, surreal portraits of his subjects. These focused studies are among his most original and well-known works.
