A photographic highlight selected by the picture desk. Bill Brandt was one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. He was born on this day in 1904 in Germany, and moved to Britain in 1933 where he began to document British society. His documentary work, portraiture and studies of nudes exemplified what he himself termed ‘a sense of wonder’, to make people see the world anew. This portrait was commissioned by Picture Post.
