Brassai (Photofile)

Author:

No photographer is more closely associated with a city than Brassaï (18991984) is with Paris. From the moment he moved there in 1924, he devoted his life and art to immortalizing his adopted city capturing the street life by day, the cafés and the Seine by night. A friend of Picasso and Henry Miller, Brassaï knew and photographed the leading figures of his day Giacometti, Sartre, Dalí, Matisse and Mann among them. His most famous portraits and cityscapes, collected in this volume, form a unique vision of life in pre- and post-war Europe.
