Review: In contrast to an alternate new book of Brandt's nudes, this volume shows his full range, including studies of working-class Londoners in the 1930s and surreal French landscapes in the 1950s. (Jack Crager American Photo)

British photographer Bill Brandt, who died in 1983, has been one of the most published of his generation. The bibliography is significant and the authors varied, but the reproductions of the images have remained largely the same - pictures of England's upper and lower classes, landscape, portraits (especially authors), and studies of the female nude. (C. Bunnell Choice)

This survey takes a long-overdue, in-depth look at one of the true giants of modern photography. (Howard Halle Time Out Magazine)
