Brassaï

My images were surreal simply in the sense that my vision brought out the fantastic dimension of reality. My only aim was to express reality, for there is nothing more surreal than reality itself. If reality fails to fill us with wonder, it is because we have fallen into the habit of seeing it as ordinary. • Brassaï, pseudonyme de Gyula Halász (1899 Romania-1984 France)
