Soho Bedroom

Bill Brandt British, born Germany

Not on view

The success of Brassaï's Paris by Night (1932) prompted the French publisher Arts et Métiers Graphiques to commission a companion volume from Brandt. A Night in London appeared in 1938 and featured sixty-four black-and-white photographs, including this one. Although the pictures appear to be candid, Brandt frequently staged scenes for the camera, recruiting his family and friends as models. Here, the male figure is the artist's younger brother Rolf.
