Gyula Halsz (1899 1984), better known as Brassa, was a Hungarian photographer who rose to international fame in France in the 20th century. Working as a journalist, Halsz wandered Paris late at night, taking photographs to supplement some of his articles for more money. Eventually he was using his camera to capture the beauty of streets and gardens in the rain and fog and to illustrate Paris nightlife. Using the name of his birthplace, Halsz went by the pseudonym "Brassa," which means "from Brasso." Introduction by travel writer Lawrence Durrell.
