Picture Perfect by Bert Hardy
Bring a sense of nostalgia and elegance to your décor
I’ve just had great fun stepping back in time adding images from celebrated photographer Bert Hardy to our collection.
Best known for his assignments at Picture Post magazine (1941 to 1957) Bert's images of life in England during and after World War II are amongst the great documents of the twentieth century and classics of British photojournalism. There’s no doubt he was gifted war photographer, however his peacetime images of people going about their daily business are more characteristic of his work. After Picture Post folded in 1957 Bert went on to be a successful advertising photographer, often using ordinary people as models.
One, two, or more of these striking images will bring a sense of nostalgia and elegance to your décor.
“The ideal picture tells something of the essence of life” wrote Hardy and you can see this through Bert's eyes here
