Abstract:

Roaming Paris streets by night in the early 1930s, Brassaï created arresting images of the city's dramatic nocturnal landscape. The back alleys, Métro stations, and bistros he photographed are by turns hauntingly empty or peopled by prostitutes, laborers, thugs, and lovers. Paris by Night, first published in French as Paris de nuit in 1932, collected sixty of these images, which have since become photographic icons. Original and subsequent editions of the book are highly sought after by collectors. For Brassaï, 1932 and 1933 were the most important years in his life; they were the years in which he met Picasso, published Paris by Night - his first book - and collaborated with the Surrealists on the magazine Minotaure.
