Brassaï Paris by Night

Brassaï né Gyula Halász (1899, Hungary) became a widely celebrated photographer in the 1930’s and 40’s known for his iconic images of Paris. His first books, Paris de Nuit captures eerie and beautiful images of the city.

Do it yourself:

If you’re inspired to explore Paris at night, try to create images with a similar mood.

-Pick a day with rainy or misty weather for a similar wet, glowing ambiance (perfect in the Winter!)

-Find areas that are well lit to capture street lamps and their reflections

-Start out along the Seine at one of Paris’ many iconic bridges

-Shoot in black in white if possible

-Use your camera’s night settings, or a high speed film (ISO 800, 1600, 3200) for the low light conditions

Have fun!
