Text: English, French (translation)From Library Journal:
Brassai came to Paris in 1923 and became its most famous chronicler in the 1920s and 1930s. This book is a companion to his erotic series, The Secret Paris of the 30s . A recreation of the 1933 edition, which did not appear here, it uses nearly all of Brassai's original plates and includes Paul Morand's original introductiona highly evocative travelogue narrative. The sensational, black-matted reproductions glow on the page, the effect heightened by the slight graininess characteristic of the process. Brassai's technique is so unobtrusive that we feel like unseen observers in the dark alleys, train yards, vegetable markets, and parks. Lighted by street lamps and devoid of crowds, it is a Paris few have seen. For photo-history collections. Kathleen Collins, Library of Congress
