Bill Brandt’s classic nude photographs taken with a wide-angle camera. Striking, popular and influential images: ‘These startling images rewrote the language of nude photography’ (Parr & Badger). Bill Brandt revolutionized the language of Nude Photography by using an old wide-angel camera, inspired by Orson Welles’ Citizen Cane and later the artistic experiments of Henry Moore and Jean Arp creating distorted angles making the bodies look like landscapes, metaphorical forms etc. The result is freudian and surrealistic and immensely influential
