Bill Brandt Stonehenge Picture Post 19th April 1947
Bill Brandt's dark and brooding landscape of Stonehenge under snow takes on a stark resonance when it is used on the cover of Picture Post. Austerity Britain is gripped by rationing and in the middle of it's worst winter (1946-47) for over a century. The magazine is dedicated to the questioning of the future of Britain. Brandt's Stonehenge symbolises some hope and belief in the future.
The article also features Brandt's unemployed Durham miner from 1936.
