Picture Perfect

These are some brilliant photographs taken by Bill Brandt. He was “was one of the acknowledged masters of 20th century photography”, said to be one of the most significant British photographer of the 20th Century. Brandt also inspired my favorite Director of Photography Emmanuel Lubezki in his work in “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” (2004).

Hope you enjoyed his photographs.

And here’s a quote from the great man:

“In this broader sense, all pictures have to be made rather than found because there is no such thing as innocent seeing.”

Bill Brandt ain’t just a great photographer, but a ‘philosopher’ as well. Wow.

It’s just too bad I can’t find a photograph of the great photographer. Won’t say much about him, I’ll just let his photographs do the talking. You might know him better this way.

He will be remembered.
