From the Publisher

Alone, or in the company of friends, Brassai discovered and recorded the forbidden Paris of the 1930s, its brothels, whores, pimps, opium dens, and transvestite cafes -- the sordid yet fascinating bas-monde where high society mingled with the underworld.

The Secret Paris of the ''30s is one of the most remarkable photographic memories ever published: like his predecessor Toulouse-Lautrec, Brassai chose to portray a hidden and daring subject matter. His photographs reveal a milieu previously known only through books such as the novels of Henry Miller (a frequent companion of Brassai''s nocturnal rambles), the seamy, grimy, yet infinitely exciting reality that tourists still think of when they seek "Paris by night".

These unique pictures are accompanied by an immensely interesting text in which Brassai reminisces and describes the extraordinary conditions under which he took his photographs.

Seller Comments:

2001. Thames & Hudson, 1977, 1st reprint. Trade paperback in mint condition; 176 gloss-paper pages with 150 of Brassaï's evocative photographs; Brassaï wrote: 'During my first years in Paris, beginning in 1924, I lived at night, going to bed at sunrise, getting up at sunset, wandering about the city from Montparnasse to Montmartre. And even though I had always ignored and disliked photography before, I was inspired to become a photographer by my desire to translate all the things that enchanted me in the nocturnal Paris I was experiencing. ' For years it has been known that Brassai had taken a series of 'secret photographs' which could not be published because of their daring nature. Alone, or in the company of friends, he discovered the forbidden Paris of the 1930's, its brothels, its whores, its pimps, its opium dens, its transvestite cafes-the sordid yet fascinating bas-monde where high society mingled with the underworld. The Secret Paris of the 30's is one of the most remarkable photographic memoirs ever to be published: like his predecessor Toulouse-Lautrec, Brassai has chosen to portray a hidden subject-matter. His photographs reveal a milieu previously known only through books such as the novels of Henry Miller (a frequent companion onBrassai's nocturnal rambles), the seamy, grimy, tatty, yet infinitely exciting reality that tourists still think of when they seek 'Paris by night'. The photographs are magnificent in themselves, and one cannot help puzzling, 'How did he do it? '. The question is answered, for these unique pictures are accompanied by an immensely interesting text, in which Brassai reminisces and describes the extraordinary conditions under which he took his photographs. 10½x8¼in.....We ship daily from our warehouse.
