Hungarian photographer, sculptor, and filmmaker who rose to international fame in France in the 20th century. He was one of the numerous Hungarian artists who flourished in Paris beginning between the World Wars. In the early 21st century, the discovery of more than 200 letters and hundreds of drawings and other items from the period 1940–1984 has provided scholars with material for understanding his later life and career.
In 1948, Brassaï married Gilberte Boyer, a French woman. She worked with him in supporting his photography. In 1949, he became a naturalized French citizen after years of being stateless.
He died on 8 July 1984.

Sy Scholfield quotes Marja Warehime, "Brassai: Images of Culture and the Surrealist Observer" (Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 1996), p. 140: "Brassai's own experience provided him with events that had a certain formal consistency: 'I was born in Transylvania on the ninth of September 1899 at 9:00 in the evening,' he wrote in 'Memories of my Childhood.'"
