"The photograph has a double destiny.... It is the daughter of the world of externals, of the living second, and as such will always keep something of the historic or scientific document about it; but it is also the daughter of the rectangle, a child of the beaux-arts. which requires one to fill up the space agreeably or harmoniously with black-and-white spots or colors."--Brassaï

"The most distinguishing characteristic of Brassai's work is its profound poise and naturalness, the sense of easy permanenc.. Looking at his pictures, one is not aware of the act of photographing; it is rather as though the subject, through some agency of its own, reproduced itself. This unchallengeable authority is the measure of Brassai's genius - of his ability to recognize primordial form, and to present his vision with a simplicity that depends on a brilliant and wholly functional technique."--John Szarkowski
