Photos by Bill Brandt.
Bill Brandt was an intuitive genius, probably the only one I consider to be in the same class as André Kertész and Lee Friedlander.
It is actually amazingly rare for a photographer to make pictorial *art*, rather than documentation. Brandt, even when he was hired to document things, still made fine art out of it.
... One thing I had not thought about: Brandt worked almost exclusively in vertical format, that is also really unusual.
