Home > Blog > A musical perspective of Bill Brandt


Through to August 29, our Recoletos exhibition venue in Madrid is showing the first-ever retrospective in Spain on Bill Brandt (Hamburg, 1904-London, 1983), considered to be one of the most influential British photographers of the twentieth century. The exhibition brings together 186 photographs that were developed by Bill Brandt himself, who, over almost five decades, tackled all the main genres of photography: social reportage, portraiture, nudes, and landscapes, as noted by his biographer Paul Delany in Bill Brandt. A Life (2004).

The exhibition combines photographs, essays, several of his cameras, illustrated publications from that period, and a selection of documents, as well as an interview with him conducted by the British Broadcasting Channel (BBC) towards the end of his life in 1983.

On Music Day we want to offer you a new experience: come and enjoy Bill Brandt’s work from the musical perspective provided by the electronic band Delaporte, and listen to their new track inspired by the work of the British photographer, entitled Aldeburgh Beach.

Access Delaporte’s video and fill your senses with emotion. Let yourself be transported. Feel. Enjoy.
