If I had a spare million I’d get this original of Hungarian photographer Gyula Halász, better known as Brassai. The famous Parisian photographer enjoyed catching candids of random people he found at night. This one was taken at “Le Bal Des Quatres Saisons” on Rue de Lappe in Paris, circa 1932.

The young gentleman is none too happy with his wife sitting by his side. He’s got his hands in his pockets, surely of contained frustration. She turned away from him, as if to subtly tell him she’s not backing up or saying she’s sorry.  In the mirror is the reflection of one of their friends facing them.
