Sujet : ON TOPIC. Brassai and Proust
Bonjour tout le monde,
''Proust in the Power of Photography'' by Brassai.
''Marcel Proust sous l' emprise de la photographie.''
Translated by Richard Howard ( 2001 )
It may not be generally known that Marcel Proust was a writer whilst Brassai was a photographer and journalist.
''Pleasures are like photographs: those taken in the beloved's presence no more than negatives, to be developed later, once you are home, having regained the use of that interior darkroom, access to which is ''condemned ''as long as you are seeing other people'' ''
-- WITHIN A BUDDING GROVE
Sorry, my French is not good enough to do this quote justice.
