Par Laetitia Allal,

Entre ombres et lumière, les clichés du photographe Bill Brandt ont marqué de leur empreinte la scène artistique du XX eme siècle.

Son oeil architecturale, ses photos en monochrome, son sens pictural du chiaroscuro, son approche poétique-surréaliste … nous plongent dans une sorte d'irréel du monde réel.


Des corps nus aux scènes sociales, entre travail d'esthète et témoignage, Bill Brandt n'a eu de cesse de préserver l'intégrité de ce qui s'offrait à son objectif.

Un maitre incontesté de la photographie en somme, de ceux qui savent vous emporter naturellement, sans forcer jamais, dans des sphères qui vous dépassent.
