The Photography of Brassai

Recently I found a fascinating post on the photography of Brassai, who specialized in night-time pictures in Paris in the 1940s . . . it’s really a series of work that reveals a certain time period, but the universal beauty and mystery of his work is also quite arresting.

I’m putting a couple of pictures here in the body of this post, but do check out the commentary over at Ace of Spades.

“Arresting” is a good description of his images. 

Loved the detail about the cigs over at ACE.
