"Undoubtedly the most significant figure in the development of photographic modernism in Britain, Bill Brandt (1904-1983) defined the artistic potential of the medium in a career that spanned half a century. His incisive chronicle of the social structure of his adopted country in the 1930's was followed by a remarkably wide range of work, including evocative portraits of virtually every British cultural luminary, timeless landscapes and a dramatic, groundbreaking series of nudes. 
 
Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light is the first full-scale examination of Brandt's oeuvre that attempts to trace a coherent trajectory across the photographer's multifaceted career. A comprehensive survey of the work Brandt published during World War 2 in a number of popular illustrated magazines reveals the origins of some of his remarkable postwar work, while a technical examination of the photographer's often painstaking retouching techniques, accompanied by detailed illustrations, offers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the process that was critical to the ultimate impact of Brandt's extraordinary photographs."
