London police constable on Point Duty at Piccadilly Circus at the junction with Regent Street 1936 Photo: Bill Brandt

Bill Brandt, Brassaï and Ansel Adams, London, 1976 ... photo by Paul Joyce “Photography is not a sport. It has no rules. Everything must be dared and tried!” Bill Brandt “To me photography must suggest, not insist or explain.” Brassaï “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” Ansel Adams

Bill Brandt. If a picture is not formally superb (although of course this is), the best rule is: make it tell a story. What lives and possibil-ities are intimated in this one moment, in this one tiny detail. (SJ)
