Set to become a collector’s edition: 140 of Bill Brandt’s classic and
dramatic nudes, brought together in one collection

‘Fantastic … a rewarding read … well-written and interesting’ – Amateur Photographer

Bill Brandt's qualities as an artist, recognized by all his peers as outstanding, were never better expressed than in his series of nudes, photographed in the studio and on location over a period of thirty-five years.

Few photographers have spanned the genres from photojournalism to true artistic endeavour as completely as Bill Brandt. Yet Brandt’s journalism was never strictly reportage: all his work reflected a clear artistic purpose.

This beautifully presented book was previously published only as a limited edition. Now, for the first time, two justly famous books: Perspective of Nudes (1961) and Bill Brandt Nudes (1980) have been brought together in a single volume.

Mark Haworth-Booth is Honorary Research Fellow at the Victoria and Albert Museum and a Senior Fellow of the Royal College of Art.
Lawrence Durrell (1912–1990) was a novelist, poet and dramatist. His most famous work is The Alexandria Quartet.
