Brandt photographed his subjects using an old police camera purchased in a second-hand shop. This big box camera with its wide depth of field allowed Brandt to photograph a complete panorama of a room with one exposure, creating 'an altered perspective and a less conventional image' (Perspective of Nudes, p. 8).
