I studied Brassai for one of my own photography projects. I learned that capturing night-shots on a film camera is very, very difficult, so I can really appreciate the skill required to take photographs as good as these.

@maddux32: It IS kinda sad! This was supposed to be the very apex of civilization, Paris was (and still is) a city above all comparison!
Also it was the late 30`s: heart of the depression and WW2 looming on the horizon.

I like his photos! They`re just packed with information. The most simple thigns find meaning when place in context.

Also: this is what hookers looked like in the days before cosmetic surgery...

Nice music too!

I found this profoundly sad. Heavy on the soul.
