The first full biography – beautifully illustrated – of Britain’s greatest photographer. Bill Brandt, the greatest of British photographers who visually defined the English identity in the mid-twentieth century, was an enigma. A shy and complex man, his life (prior to his arrival in England and the publication of his first book The English at Home in 1936) placed him at the centre of European artistic currents which were to shape his subsequent vision and equip him with the means to portray ‘Englishness’ unlike any photographer before him, and perhaps unlike any who have followed After his death in 1983, Brandt left a complicated trail behind him.

Condition: Very good, some marking to cover and light shelfwear.
