The image is powerful with the stones linking the 'earth with the heavens'. Bill Brandt is one of the pre-eminent photographers. His black and white photographs were always created, not works of chance, and possess a strange mixture of mystery and theatre. This is the first work by Brandt to enter the collection and provides an interesting contrast with other works in the collection.
