    I found this profoundly sad. Heavy on the soul.

    @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 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.
