Some of the greatest names in photographic history appear in Paris Night & Day. This exhibition features vintage prints by French nationals and international photographers who worked in Paris, including Eugène Atget, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Brassaï, Ilse Bing, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bill Brandt, André Kertész and Man Ray. Paris Night & Day comprises works ranging from the lingering realist perspective of the late 19th century, through to the modernist experiments in the early twentieth century and culminating in the startling world of Surrealist photography in the 1930s. Lovers of photography will delight in the many iconic images to be seen.
