Brassai was a pioneer of photography – he was one of the first to master photography at night – scaling Notre Dame to take iconic images that required huge exposures. Brassai’s interest in graffiti started in the 1930’s – he began to capture these crude forms of ‘outsider art’ daubed to walls, toilet cubicles and public buildings. When you put these photographs directly alongside the birth of surrealism that was forming in Paris within Brassai’s group of friends and peers its easy to see why they continue to be such captivating photographs.Follow @ispyer
