    "Bill Brandt's position as one of the greatest British photographers of the twentieth century is incontestable. His name and achievement fit easily within the pantheon of international 'greats' of modern photography: Atget, Brassaï, Kertész and Cartier-Bresson. And even in such illustrious company the range and complexity of Brandt's images are outstanding… This retrospective review of Brandt's work, edited with a brilliantly perceptive introduction by Ian Jeffrey, is published on the occasion of a major exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery, London. Its six sections cover every aspect of his art, from the early sociological studies to the late nudes. Many celebrated images are includes, but others have never been seen in book form before, inviting a fresh view of Brandt's achievement. Four invaluable factual appendices complete what will undoubtedly be regarded as the standard work on this most brilliant and enigmatic of British photographers."
