When you meet the man you see at once that he is equipped with no ordinary eyes, said Henry Miller of his friend’s photographic genius.

One of the most important and influential photographers of the century, Brassaï (1899—1984) is best known for recording demi-monde Paris in the 1930s. He is also known for revealing the hidden, more seamy side of the city: a shadowy world and it’s inhabitants coming to life at night, and classic photo-portraits of artists such as Matisse, Picasso and members of the Surrealist group.

Together with superb duotone and four-colour reproductions of Brassaï’s work, and about 100 previously unpublished images from famous photostories, this substantial and definitive book includes an interview with Brassaï’s widow and essays on his
long career.
