Paris At Night

Josephine Baker with the Orchestra 1925

Alex Novak: "Is there anything more romantic than an evening in Paris, the city for lovers? And the Eiffel Tower, the ponts (bridges) and the nightlife all provide a focus for an evening in this city of lights.
In this Special Exhibit, you will find everything from the Tour Eiffel lit spectacularly in celebration, to Paris' quiet back streets and alleyways, from its brasseries and follies to its street fairs and circuses. As you might expect, the photographers were mostly French or at least based in Paris. Some of Paris' top names are represented here: Laure Albin-Guillot, Maurice Chanu, Ilsa Bing, Roger Schall, William Odiorne, the Russian B. Lipnitzki and the German Germaine Krull. But some of the anonymous wire services also made some contributions.
The images reflect important history (for instance, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower) and anonymous private moments. The photographs include people who were famous (Josephine Baker and Kees Van Dongen) and totally unknown."
