Bill Brandt: Another way of seeing

Bill Brandt is currently considered one of the founders of modern photography. Very peculiar character, because although he was born in Germany he repudiated his nationality from a very young age by posing as a British citizen for many years; He never liked color photography because he considered that it always looked bad, which is why his work is a collection of black and white images about social contrasts in British society, portraits (which he always prepared in advance), nudes with great influence of surrealism, and landscapes. All of his work with a very personal stamp that is why he believed that each photographer should discover what really excites him visually. He must discover his own world

Very jealous of his work and his technique, a journalist asked him how he had taken a certain photograph, one of the most famous and sold by the author; he never revealed the secret.
