First Post: Facial Expression and Light

Bill Brandt: Miners Returning to Daylight, South Wales; Window in Osborn Street; both 1931-5

Brandt's London scenes are real. They don't just convey a meaning but each one also tells a story. I admire his eye for such scenes. The way the subjects are perfectly in synch with their setting, tells a story. The way the light hits them, contributes to the story. The contrast, the shapes, the faces all work together flawlessly.
