Paris by Night: Vintage Prints from the Collection of Madame Brassai (NSFW)

Paris by Night: Vintage Prints from the Collection of Madame Brassai (NSFW)

The Edwynn Houk Gallery, in New York City, exhibited the twenty-three photographs from the Madame Brassai collection from September 13 - October 27, 2018. These vintage photographs were all produced in the 1930s. Each image reflects deeply upon a time and an era in Paris, which is both astounding, beautiful and provocative. Edwynn Houk wrote about the collection (in “Brassaii: The Eye of Paris), “For me, one of the greatest opportunities and privileges of the past decade has been to share in her intimate knowledge of Brassai’s life and career, as well as to have been personally involved in some of the fundamental research into his art.”
