One of the most evocative photographic memoirs every published. It was known that Brassai had taken a series of 'secret photographs' which could not be published because of their daring nature - the forbidden Paris, a sordid bas-monde where high society mingled with the underworld.

Brassai: Paris by Gilberte Brassai Brassai: Paris, Hardback (November 2013)

Hungarian-born photographer Brassai dedicated more than 50 years of his artistic creation to capturing his adoptive city in all its facets. In an interview shortly before his death in 1984, this book explains how Paris had served as an infinite source of inspiration and had reined as the unifying theme that characterized each phrase of his work.

In the Face of History by Gilberte Brassai In the Face of History, Hardback (October 2006)

Presents a collection of works by some of the greatest European photographers of the twentieth century. This book contains images of hope and despair that capture some of the key events in the continent's history and illuminate the currents of political and social change that shape and are shaped by individual lives.

Henry Miller, Happy Rock by Gilberte Brassai Henry Miller, Happy Rock, Hardback (December 2002)

Over the course of a number of warm, intimate conversations, Brassai and Miller, friends for many years, discuss art, literature, Paris, the lives and works of many others in their circle, including Lawrence Durrell, Henri Matisse, Salvador Dali and Paul Klee among others.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Stalking the streets of Paris in the 1930s, Brassai produced an extraordinary portfolio of photographs of the city's bas-monde - a world of prostitutes, gangsters and pimps, of brothels, music halls and opium dens. The photographs were all taken at night, and Brassai's enthusiasm for gaslight - sharp islands of light within a sea of shadows - is clearly evident here. Brassai supplies his own commentary to the images, and together they brilliantly evoke a vanished world. (Kirkus UK)
