"Brassaï, for the Love of Paris" 5 rue Lobau 75004 Paris fr

The exhibition recounts the extraordinary story of one man’s passion: that which united Brassaï with the nooks and crannies of the French capital, but also with intellectuals, artists, large families and prostitutes – all those who have made Paris the mythical place it is.

He felt compelled to transform the real into the unreal. He sought out the most ordinary objects and changed their meaning, dared to create offbeat juxtapositions, and played with perception by taking the everyday out of its normal context.

The exhibition pays tribute to one of the greatest French photographers of the twentieth century and offers the visitor a curious look on the City of Light.
