No photographer is more closely associated with a city than Brassaï (1899–1984) with Paris
His most famous portraits and cityscapes, collected in this volume, form a unique vision of life in pre- and post-war Europe.
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.
