"Within the two-dimensional plane of the photograph itself, Brett has an equally rare capacity to create rhythms and dynamics in what we know to be perfect stillness. It is done of course, through the relationship of one form to another-powerful to weak- within the picture. Only the full exploitation of the black-and-white spectrum can accomplish such movement or- when he has chosen- the Zen-like immobility of ponds, harbors, canals, and other landscapes. An intriguing quality in Brett's work is that the greater the distance his lens encompasses, the less movement there is. The closer the subject, the more intense the rhythmic relationship." (R.H. Cravens).
