Photographer Bert Hardy would celebrate his 100th birthday this year. Although he was a gifted wartime photographer, his most popular work was his depictions of people in everyday situations. These are amazing shots, made in his characteristic, as it were, spontaneous, but abrupt manner, with short and slightly cynical titles given by the author himself. In honor of the anniversary of Bert Hardy, an exhibition of his work will be held at the London Museum of Photography.
