BRASSAI: “PARIS BY NIGHT”

 

Arriving in Paris in 1924, Brassaï 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, Brassaï photographed its every aspect, from police to prostitutes to the homeless to socialites, all in a dreamlike and mysterious manner.

  1. Maravilla!!! Y pensar que en Tucamon.es, sitio en el cual estoy siguiendo “Un año de fotografía”, cuando mostraron algunas fotografías de este genio, pareciera que consideraron “no aptas para todo público” estas espléndidas fotografías que aquí acabo de descubrir…¡madre mía, estas auto-censuras en el siglo XXI! ¡Es para no creer!
