    Bill Brandt: Shadows and Substance
    May 31, 2008 - August 24, 2008


    Bill Brandt, England’s greatest twentieth-century photographer, began as a photojournalist and became a poet of light and shadow. Decade by decade, Brandt (1904 – 1983) moved toward evermore radical dualities of black and white, not just in his new photographs but also in his printing of older images. This resulted in his own reinterpretation of his earlier work. Bill Brandt: Shadows and Substance presents 67 photographs from throughout the artist’s career. All are vintage prints, providing a rare opportunity to see the work as the artist originally conceived it.

    Unfortunately not the best

    Sadly it seems that this is merely a dealer collection.

    The absolute best Bill Brandt show in terms of its depth and originality is actually the one currently showing at the Museum of Albuquerque New Mexico. It contains 155 vintage prints which come direct from the Bill Brandt Archive. It is the one that has been shown at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London on Brandt's centenary in 2004.
