No photographer is more closely associated with a city than Brassai (1899-1984) 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 cafes and the Seine by night. A friend of Picasso and Henry Miller, Brassai knew and photographed the leading figures of his day – Giacometti, Sartre, Dali, 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.
