Photography has no rules. It is not a sport. It is the result which counts, no matter how it is achieved. - Bill Brandt
I see Bill Brandt's wonderfully uncompromising statement reflected in his remarkable photographs of nudes taken with the ultra-wide angle lens he loved. And in his commitment to the high contrast print that gives his work a stark, unflinching quality.
Once a photographer has developed his or her 'style', the final image is already in the mind even before the shutter is activated. Instinctively or subconsciously, it is not just the composition but the anticipated impact we hope the photograph will have on the viewer that is already transforming the subject photographed in the moment into the framed object placed on the wall.
