Photo of the week No.47: Staircase of Butte Montmartre, Paris, 1937 by Brassaï

Here is the second of four photos I’ve selected from the Twitter feed of aucharbon@alcarbon68.

This photo by Brassaï in 1937 is of the Escalier de la Butte Montmartre in Paris. The staircase is a popular subject for photographers. You can read about the staircase on the Soundlandscape’s blog.

While the staircase is much photographed, Brassaï’s image has an ethereal quality to it, in misty light, and devoid of people.
