Paris by Night.
by [Paris in the 20s] Brassai.

Publisher Information:
Pantheon,, New York:: 1987..

A Fine copy in a Very Good unclipped dust jacket with peeling to the jacket laminate. Arriving in Paris in 1924, Brassaļ rapidly became a shrewd observer of nocturnal Parisian life. He sensed that photography was the tool that would allow him to document his vision of a dying society. Fascinated by the night, which he found disconcerting, enigmatic, and suggestive, Brassaļ photographed its every aspect, from police to prostitutes to the homeless to socialites, all in a dreamlike and mysterious manner. In sixty-four images, Brassaļ succeeded in remarkably capturing this unique ambience. This book, meticulously assembled by Brassaļ himself, signifies the birth of the artist. Brassaļ, originally from Hungary, traveled to Paris in 1924, where he began to associate with the avant-garde artist community, in particular with Picasso and the Parisian surrealist circles. He quickly established himself as one of the most original photographers of his generation.
