Paris By Night.
by Brassai (Gyula Halász).
A Fine tight copy in a Near fine unclipped dust jacket with a few spots of laminate separation at the spine, otherwise Fine. Brassai moved from Berlin to Paris in 1924 and took a job as a journalist and photographer. His job often allowed him to wander the night streets. Armed with his camera, he captured the essence of the city in his photographs, publishing his first book of photographs in 1933 titled Paris de nuit (Paris by Night). His efforts met with great success, resulting in his being called "the eye of Paris" in an essay by his friend Henry Miller. In addition to photos of the seedier side of Paris, he also provided scenes from the life of the city's high society, its intellectuals, its ballet, and the grand operas. This volume collects many of his most famous Paris images.
