Bill Brandt

Bill Brandt gained success through capturing a variety of subjects which include surrealist nudes, industrial workers and landscapes.

He moved to England in 1931 to shoot images for his project “ The English at home” covering industrialisation. This transition landed Brandt at the heart of the photojournalistic industry, where he captured images of important stories for magazines. One of his most famous series was Coal Mining and Industrial northern England.

Brandt’s series on Coal Mining was extremely effective at communicating the struggles of Industrial life, as well as revealing the despair felt by the workers. Because of this I believe his intention was to recreate the moods and tensions of the Great Depression through his imagery, which I believe he did.
