About A Night in London

In A Night in London, Brand portrays a city before a war that loomed from not too far away. This is Brandt's second book and it portrays this bustling city from dusk to dawn. Brand creates an rhythm that adjusts to the one from London, with dynamic images full of on going things. Sometimes his photographs can be classified as straight documentary, where he saw what was happening and captured it. Sometimes we can tell they are highly staged (photo-illustration). Brand arranged the images so they act as pairs.

About Bill Brandt

Bill Brandt was a British photographer and photojournalist. Although he was originally from Germany, he moved to England in the 1930’s. He would later reject his German nationality and say that he had been born in South London. It was in London where he became known for his images of British society. Bill Brandt’s career spanned nearly half a century. Also, he mastered several genres of photography, starting with photojournalism but later going into distorted nudes, portraits of famous artists and landscapes. He is widely considered to be one of the most important British photographers of the 20th century. Bill Brandt died in 1983.
