On Exhibit: One of Britain's most influential modern photographers

Bill Brandt portrayed the lives of all levels of British society in both staged and documentary photographs from the 1930s and 1940s. Now four of his works, including Soho Bedroom (1936), depicting a couple locked in a passionate embrace which was published in his influential book A Night in London (1938) can be viewed in a new exhibition at the Met, details of which can be found here

Brandt also made night views of London during the Blitz, when the city imposed blackouts.
