If you love Film Photography and Paris, then odds are that you already know of Brassai.
One of the most renowned photographers of the interwar period, Brassaï’s reputation rests on contributions to both commercial and avant-garde photography. His long-time friend, the author Henry Miller, nicknamed him “The Eye of Paris” for his devotion to the city, and he was close to many of its artists.
I didn’t until I discovered his sublime photographs that transported me to Paris in the 1930s. I especially love the scenes of rainy Paris and Collete’s cat.
Filled with verisimilitude–these photographs are so inspiring and make me realise–there is so much to learn, everyday.
