Black and white photography may seem simple, but finding that perfect shade of grey is often a difficult task. It’s safe to say that Bill Brandt was one of the best. Recently, the MoMA acquired tons of old negatives never before seen by the public. Shadow and Light runs at the MoMA through August 12, and this is one exhibition you don’t want to miss.
