Brassai: Images of Culture and the Surrealist Observer (Modernist Studies)
by Marja Warehime
Publisher's Description
Brassaï is regarded as one of the most unique and influential photographers of the century. Occupying a space between documentary realism and Surrealism, he is known for his evocative images of the Parisian night--cafés, dance halls, brothels, and city streets. In this book, Marja Warehime offers an authoritative, penetrating analysis of Brassaï's work, showing that his career reflects not only the development of photography but also the sweep of Western cultural history.
