Paris de Nuit

By Brassaï

Introduction by Paul Morand

Bio brassa
Bio: Brassaï

  • Brassaï was a Hungarian abstract painter, journalist, photographer and sculptor.

  • “I was inspired to become a photographer by my desire to translate all things that enchanted me in the nocturnal Paris I was experiencing”

  • In order to include the more exclusive, underground social circles of 1930’s Paris, Brassaï became a regular on the scene. Once he was accepted, he would begin to photograph. While making Paris de Nuit, he frequented brothels and other seedy establishments.

  • Night photography was a foreign concept in the early 1930’s and Brassaï was on the forefront in popularizing the technique.

  • In Paul Morand’s introduction to Paris de Nuit, he states, “La nuitn’est pas le négatif du jour – the night is not the the negative of the day.”

  • Paris de Nuit shows a side of the city that is often overlooked. The photos are lonely, romantic and beautifully haunting.
