Brassaï On The Internet

"There are many photographs which are full of life but which are confusing and difficult to remember. It is the force of an image which matters." -Brassai , Amateur Photographer, June 18, 1969.

Gyula Halász (1899-1984) was a Hungarian photographer, filmmaker and sculptor who went by the professional name, Brassaï. He is best known for his night photographs of Paris in the 1930s. When Henry Miller first arrived for his near decade-long residence in Paris, he sometimes accompanied Brassaï on these excursions. Brassaï also took one of Henry's most iconic photographs, of him leaning against a door frame with a cigarette between his fingers. Miller added to Brassaï's iconic status by dubbing him The Eye Of Paris. The two men remained friends in the following decades, although things seemed to sour near the end after Brassaï wrote the Miller book, Henry Miller: Happy Rock. (?)

There are many anecdotes to tell about these two men together, but this post is meant only as a resource for further internet information about Brassaï.

Just got Brassai's memoir of Henry Miller's Paris years recently - good work, though he does criticize Miller a bit.

I also have his Paris at Night collection. I wonder how much I will see it through his eyes when I visit Paris this winter?
