Brassaï in Paris: A Photographer's Love Letter to the City of Light

You're walking down these stairs very early on a foggy morning. You smell the faint scent of men's cologne, and hear footsteps, but, no matter how hard you look, you don't see anyone. You spin around and find you're now face-to-face with the illusive man.

George Brassaï  (nee Gyula Halász) (9 September 1899 — 8 July 1984) was a Hungarian (Transylvanian) photographer sculptor, and filmmaker who rose to international fame in France in the early 20th century. It would seem that Brassai shot everything and was allowed everywhere in 1920′s Paris.
