5つ星のうち 5.0 I have the edition published in the 70s and see no problems with the pictures. 2006/1/31
投稿者 Alexiel - (Amazon.com)
On newer editions I hear there are problems, though. Older editions should be availble for a reasonable price if you look in the right places.

As for the book itself - WOW. I've also had a very strong affinity for two subjects this book covers - the seamier, hidden side of cities, and 1920s-1930s Paris. In the text he added to the 1970s edition, Brassai lamented how, even in the 1970s, the seedy Paris he had grown up with and loved was dead. He questioned the idea of prettying up everything and cities losing character. It is more true now, 3 decades after it was written, then it was then. Brassai lamented the loss of, among other things, gas lighting, street urinals, clochards (the homeless who lived under the bridges), the Les Halles market, and many other things. Likewise, in modern times, it's hard to stroll down the almost nauseatingly hip Rue de Lappe and believe it was once the biggest streetwalker hangout in all of Europe at the time, or that the Place de Contrescarpe or Rue Mouffetard were seedy.

But they were, and it makes more fascinating reading and viewing. Brassai draws us into his secret world, and I thank him for doing so. He weaves for us an engaging and fascinating look at the Parisian world of the time as any Balzac or Proust novel, I believe that.

He brings us pictures of lovers, seamy carnivals and dance halls, sewage sanitation workers making their nightly rounds, homeless people living under a bridge with their pets, a mysterious fat woman, an opium den, cabarets, prostitutes, small-time cons and hoods, cops, urinals, and much more. It is a truly fascinating world of a time long past he brings us into. I liked all the pictures greatly, but in particular, I liked the carnival pictures, the shots from atop Notre Dame at night, the picture of the guy standing up and kissing his girlfriend on the carnival ride was a sweet moment frozen in time, the two lovers sharing a tender moment looking at each other on a street, the opium den photos, the "novice" prosititute, heck, I may as well just stick to my original sentiment - they're all great.

Everyone should read and view this book, even if the subject matter hasn't interested them up to this point. It's a look at a time and place paradoxically radically different and not so different from our own.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Surrealism at its best..... 2010/7/11
投稿者 Brunie Feliciano - (Amazon.com)
If you are a dreamer, poet, artist, painter, photograher you will love this book. Photographs that capture
the imagination and mystery of one of the most fecund periods in the history of art. Here, it is Art revealed through Life. And the life here is what still captivates....it is abundant, joyous, flowing energy.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Very Nice 2014/2/13
投稿者 Chuck - (Amazon.com)
A nice companion book to The Secret Paris of the 30s, also by Brassai. The plates are beautiful, well reproduced and black matted. Printed on very heavy paper. Very pleased with the book.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Historical, Magical, Beautiful. 2013/9/6
投稿者 Susan Boyer - (Amazon.com)
Great book, well organized so that the photos are shown off to best advantage and also are fully explained. Whether you are an admirer of photography or a fan of Paris, a history buff or a lover of older, unique books, Paris By Night will keep you turning pages to see what intriguing image comes next. Moods are expressed, stories are told in these black and white photos of Paris, all taken at night with often mesmerizing effects. Brassai's passion and skill more than compensate for the limited technology of the time; his love for Paris and for creating portraits of it combine to make Paris By Night a treasure for photography enthusiasts and others who appreciate excellence in any form.
