Bill Brandt

I'm really enjoying reading about Bill Brandt in my photo history class and I thought I'd share some images of his:
"It is part of the photographer's job to see more intensely than most people do. He must have and keep in him something of the receptiveness of a child who looks at the world for the first time or of the traveler who enters a strange country... We are most of us too busy, too worried, too intent on proving ourselves right, too obsessed with ideas to stand and stare... Very rarely are we able to free our minds of thoughts and emotions and just see for the simple pleasure of seeing. And so long as we fail to do this, so long will the essence of things be hidden from us" - Brandt
