"When specialty cameras, trick photography, and digital manipulation are combined with creative genius, photography becomes and extremely versatile medium of expression and self-exploration. This program examines the history of photography, charting its evolution from a technical craft to a fine art. Works of Tim Macmillan, Catherine Opie, Suky Best, Alison Jackson, and Caroline Molloy are highlighted. Archival clips of Man Ray, Cindy Sherman, Bill Brandt, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andreas Feininger, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Duane Michals, Richard Avedon, and Elsie Hill are included"--Container
Perspective of nudes by Bill Brandt ( Book )
13 editions published in 1961 in 3 languages and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The series of nudes that Bill Brandt made between 1947 and 1960--brought to triumph fruition after he acquired an old wide-angle camera--is justly renowned. These startling images rewrote the language of nude photography in not one, but several quarters. Brandt's approach was primarily formal, but his own sensibilities, combined with photography's tendency to overwhelm form's purity with life's impurities, ensured that his nudes are as interesting for their psychological undertones as for the wealth of unexpected forms he conjured. He did so with a camera that was devoid of a practicable viewing mechanism and thus reduced him, in effect, to working by blind instinct. ... Brandt wrote that the photographer must teach himself to see with a child's curiosity, and this would seem to be the key. At close range, his ancient camera yields a Venusian giantism, where sometimes sharply defined, sometimes blurred mountains of flesh loom over the artist/observer. ... It seems fitting that Brandt, the most cosmopolitan of English photographers--Hampstead intellectual, avowed aficionado of Secessionist Vienna, and psychoanalytical subject--should make nudes that are so classically Freudian in character."--The Photobook : A History Volume I / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger.
