Submitted images must be in black and white. Before entering this contest check out Brassai’s street photography here: https://tinyurl.com/yeytbaue Brassai (1899-1984) was a Hungarian-French photographer, amongst other things, and was nicknamed “The Eye of Paris” by his friend, the author Henry Miller. Brassai’s 1933 book, Paris de Nuit (Paris by Night) contained many studies of the often deserted streets and bridges of Paris under the cover of darkness. Street lamps burning through fog, cobbles glistening, and occasional passersby waiting on a corner, or couples tucked away down an alleyway. In this contest we’re using Brassai’s outdoor, night-time street photography as an inspiration, to see how it can inform our own photography. For a full Brassai effect, let’s restrict ourselves to black and white images only.
