S ebb by like frozen boiling rivers through the blinding lights all effervescent ellow forever dimming upwards hawking wares like glittering salvations from the heart of the night s pure diversion from diurnal life The most beautiful depiction of societal life I ve ever seen This collection of night photographs filled with atmosphere Urban scenes from the 1930s are lit by the moon and lamplight The images are matte and not particularly contrasty and I don t think they are shown to their full advantage You still get a sense however of Brassai s nocturnal Paris The intr Look for the 1987 Pantheon edition printed in photo gravure like the original Much better This book may not have all of Brassai s best works but it is the most successful collection that I have seen in capturing the spirit of Brassai s photography Specifically these works and the great introductory text by Paul Morand encapsulate that certain magic which rises from the gutters after the sun has set The publishers did well to frame these photographs on black pages Other books do not and the effect is rather like telling ghost stories under fluorescent lighting When I was a kid we had this book on our coffee table His photos are beautiful.

Mage with the shadows I also loved that many of his images focused on working people in the dead of night Great artist Great work I need to read on this wonderful man the only thing i didn t like about this book was the uality of the paper matte not glossy faded not clear it took away a lot from the images it was hard to really see the pictures and as it is the images themselves are a delicate balance of light and dark small to extreme compositions and tiny focal points to large ones the surrealism of the work is exemplary a lot of artists strive to capture this but Brassai not only succeeded but he did it at night also the mix of artistic and journalistic approaches makes the work a pleasure to experience not so much seen rather devoured this visual feast Brassa s famous exuisite portrait of Paris under cover of the night of humanity as light beaming out of holes punched in the darkness simultaneously standing out against and hiding within the evening gloom Forms dance in silent slow movements beckoning ou forward hinting of a meaning slightly underwater gently out of grasp They move like fish in the still dark waters of a lake men flitting through existence stuck between two states of being The road.
