ABSTRACT
The article discusses British photographer Bill Brandt's life as a photojournalist. From 1930s-1940s, Brandt became a photojournalist regularly commissioned by several magazines and the British government. In 1940, the Home Office commissioned Brandt to record conditions in the London air-raid shelters and was regularly given an itinerary of shelters to photograph, as many as five in one night, in some instances. These photographs from 1930s-1940s, which reflects British life during war and its aftermath, were included in Brandt's third book of photographs "Camera in London." Many compare Brandt's photographs during this period to Elizabeth Bowens' prose interpretations of wartime London. Examples of these photographs were presented.
