Foam proudly present the exhibition of the most influential and internationally admired photographer Bill Brandt (1904- 1983). Brandt was a British photographer and photojournalist. The Beautiful and the Sinister demonstrates the close relationships existing between the work of the British photographer and the art of the European avant-garde, in particular Surrealism. Departing from the notion that the sinister is an ever present element of Brandt’s photographs, the exhibition shows how this characteristic manifests itself in both his artistic and documentary production. From his earliest photos, taken when he was still an amateur in the thirties, to his last portraits and nudes, Brandt shows a permanent attraction to the strange, to those backdrops that offer a glimpse of the everyday world as soon as we pay it a little attention.
