Publisher's description: No photographer is more closely associated with a city than Brassai is with Paris. From the moment he moved there in 1924, he devoted his life and art to immortalizing his adopted city capturing the street life by day, the cafes and the Seine by night. A friend of Picasso and Henry Miller, Brassai knew and photographed the leading figures of his day Giacometti, Sartre, Dali, Matisse, and Mann among them. His most famous portraits and cityscapes, collected in this volume, form a unique vision of life in pre and postwar Europe. The Photofile series brings together the best work of the world's greatest photographers in an attractive format and at an affordable price. Handsome and collectable, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full page reproductions, a critical introduction and a full bibliography. The series was awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography.
