July 8, 1984 died one of the great masters of photography of the XX century Brassaï. When he was christened Gyula Halasz (Gyula Halasz, 1899-1984). It was in 1899, in the town of Brasso, Transylvania. To the world he photographs Brassaï (Brassai), a Frenchman. As if this is his real name, but only the name of the town where he was born. He loves French literature, painting, theater and the city of Paris, as he loved his father, who had studied at the Sorbonne and became a professor of literature at the University of Brasso. He brought the future of photography in Paris at the age of four years. They lived there for a year, and the boy was also fascinated by this city.

Twenty years later, Brassaï returned to Paris, after two years he studied at the School of Fine Arts in Budapest and another two years - at the Art Academy in Berlin. Strange, but over the next eight years, he left the art and became engaged in journalism. To capture certain aspects of Paris after dark, he took a loan from the chamber of his friend, the Hungarian André Kertész, a well-known photographer in Paris.

Brassaï began to take the life of Paris, in all variety. He shot prostitutes and clochard, ordinary workers and refined aristocrats. He also filmed views and panorama of Paris. He liked to work at night. Brassaï had a technique that allows to fix the photos all the shadows and midtones pre-dawn hours. In 1933, the album was released Brassaï "Paris by Night", which brought him fame and popularity. Fortuneteller.
