FIRST EDITION AND A FINE COPY OF THIS BEAUTIFULLY PRODUCED COLLECTION, featuring Brassaï's unforgettable scenes of Paris. "One of the most important and influential photographers of the 20th century, Brassai (1899-1984) moved to Paris from Hungary in 1924. Roaming Paris streets by night in the early 1930's, Brassai created arresting images of the city's dramatic norcturnal landscape. The back alleys, Metro stations, and bistros he phoographed are by turns hauntingly empty or peopled by prostitutes, laborers, thugs, and lovers.." Item #29973
