Secret Paris of the 30's
The Secret Paris of the 30's is one of the most evocative photographic memoirs ever published.
For years it was known that Brassai had taken a series of 'secret photographs' which could not be published because of their daring nature. Alone, or in the company of friends, he discovered the forbidden Paris of the 1930's - its brothels, whores, pimps, and opium dens - the sordid yet bewitching bas-monde where high society mingled with the underworld.
These fascinating images are accompanied by Brassai's own text, in which he describes the extraordinary conditions under which he took his photographs.
