Arriving in Paris in 1924, Brassa#65533; rapidly became a shrewd observer of nocturnal Parisian life. He sensed that photography was the tool that would allow him to document his vision of a dying society.

Fascinated by the night, which he found disconcerting, enigmatic, and suggestive, Brassa#65533; photographed its every aspect, from police to prostitutes to the homeless to socialites, all in a dreamlike and mysterious manner. In sixty-four images, Brassa#65533; succeeded in remarkably capturing this unique ambience. This book, meticulously assembled by Brassa#65533; himself, signifies the birth of the artist.

Brassa#65533;, originally from Hungary, traveled to Paris in 1924, where he began to associate with the avant-garde artist community, in particular with Picasso and the Parisian surrealist circles. He quickly established himself as one of the most original photographers of his generation.
