George Brassai

George Brassai, a pseudonym of Gyula Halasz (1899 - 1984), is one of the most famous Hungarian photographers of all time. Especially his Paris street scenes, shot between the world wars, have a timeless quality. I like the photograph above very much - it is a shot of the staircase in the rue Rollin around 1933. More on Brassai in the Wikipedia article linked to below.
