Paris As The Muse: The Photography Of Brassaï

My first encounter with Brassaï was many years ago when I bought a copy of Anais Nin’s A Spy in the House of Love. The cover was of a couple drinking tea and sharing a tender moment in what looks like a Parisian style cafe in the 1920’s or maybe 30’s. I was entranced by this bohemian image and immediately sought the photographer out. Today, that image is printed on a postcard that is stuck to my wall next to where I write. It inspires me each time I stop to glance at it. I thought it only right to include his work in the gallery, if his photography inspires you as much as it does me then you will be in heaven.
