The enduring power of Brad Holland's images

The enduring power of Brad Holland's images

There’s no one like Brad Holland. One could try to copy his work, but then, one would just be a copyist. His influence is in his profundity. His work has always had a weightiness, a power, a heaviness of content. Nothing light. Never light. Always deep. Divine.

His work stops one cold. One becomes transfixed by the power of his images, stopping, staring, taking it in. It is impossible to dismiss.

Browsing his website is a pleasure.

His home page shows a master grid of faces, which is ironic, because it is in the entirety of each individual image that lies it's power.  

Brad's editorial work was first published in the late 1960s for Avant Garde and Playboy. In 1970, he became a regular contributor to The New York Times Op-Ed page covering the Watergate scandal. For these, he was nominated in 1976 by The New York Times for a Pulitzer Prize in Editorial Cartooning. Since then, he has never stopped working.
