Bill Brandt/Henry Moore, The Hepworth Wakefield review – a matter of perception

Brandt, a photographer, and Moore, a sculptor, both recorded London during WW2, working independently but often on similar subjects. Moore’s sketches have a “mythical” quality but Brandt’s developing and cropping techniques made his images equally subjective. There is no hierarchy between these artforms says one critic, “both artists seem to have been aiming for the same semi-abstract goal.”
