Open Gutter by Brassai

The photograph titled “Open Gutter” was captured by the artist Brassai and is part of the collection “Paris by Night.” This image is a black and white photograph which showcases a nighttime scene with an open gutter winding its way through what appears to be a cobblestone street. The lighting creates a high contrast scene, highlighting the textures of the street as well as the reflective qualities of the water in the gutter. The composition guides the viewer’s eye along the sinuous curve of the gutter, evoking a sense of motion within the still image. The picture seems to capture the gritty, yet poetic nature of Parisian streets after dark.
