Dance Hall

Gyula Halasz also referred to himself as Brassai, after his native city, Brasso arrived in Paris in 1924. He lost his heart to the city with its streets, squares, backs ally’s, bars, and cafes. Once he was introduced to the small camera be turned nocturnal and began spending the hours from dusk to dawn in pursuit of the “ decisive moment”, when gesture, expression, time, and place allowed character to be revealed at its most naked. I really enjoy his picture Dance Hall. 1932. Gelatin silver print. It really showed cosmopolitan Paris, which was exactly the look that Brassai was after.
