About the artist
In 1924 Gyula Hasálz moved to Paris, where he took the name Brassaï (after his Hungarian hometown, Brassó) and began working as a journalist. In letters home he described his busy life writing and illustrating various publications as well as his growing interest in photographing lovers, brothels, prostitutes, and other “phantoms of the night.”
