Bill Brandt’s exploration of the nude as a subject for his work began after the Second World War. The hallmark of this work is the abstraction of the female body, usually concentrated in the foreground of the images. He sometimes employed a distortion so extreme that the photographed body part would be barely recognisable. Brandt initially used a Kodak wide-angle camera for his nude studies. An object more than four feet from the camera was in focus and the 110 angle covered by the lens meant that the whole scope of a scene would be seen inside the frame.
