Description

As-new, in publisher’s original shrink-wrap.
Arriving in Paris in 1924, Brassaï rapidly became a shrewd observer of nocturnal Parisian life. Fascinated by the night, which he found disconcerting, enigmatic, and suggestive, Brassaï photographed its every aspect, from police to prostitutes, to the homeless, to socialites, all in a dreamlike and mysterious manner.This book, meticulously assembled by Brassaï himself, signifies the birth of the artist.
