Brassai: The ‘Eye of Paris’

While in Paris, photography became Brassai's main language as he wandered through bars, ballrooms and occasionally brothels, sometimes giving direction to his subjects.

That sentiment and others cited in “Brassai,” a book recently released by Spain’s Fundación Mapfre, were most likely colored by Brassaï’s retrospective regret for not returning to painting. His legacy would come from his peregrinations outside the studio.
