Bert Hardy (1913-1995) was an English documentary and press photographer known for his work published in the Picture Post magazine between 1941 and 1957. London born and entirely self-taught, Hardy was one of the UK’s first professionals to embrace the 35mm Leica in favour of a traditional large-format press camera. An inspiration to a generation of photojournalists, Hardy was often greeted as warmly by his subjects as he was by his peers.  He is named alongside Bill Brandt and Don McCullin and is regarded as one of the greatest British photojournalists from the genre’s Golden Age, standing alongside Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa and Werner Bischoff as the giants of 20th-century photography. This print is beautifully mounted and framed in a black wood frame. Outside frame dimensions are 38 x 48 x 3.5 cm. Please allow 3-4 weeks for shipping.
