Few locations inspire such immediate and glamorous imagery as Paris, and one photographer is known for capturing the city’s 20th-century nightlife. The work of Brassaï, the single-name Hungarian-French photographer, is being memorialized in an eponymous, 368-page tome, out now from Spanish publisher Fundación Mapfre. He moved to Paris in the glitzy, Fitzgerald-filled 1920s and documented France until his death, in 1984.
