  1. Paris de Nuit By Brassaï Introduction by Paul Morand

  2. 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.

  3. Paris de Nuit • 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.
