Description

French photographer Eugene Atget (February 12, 1857 - August 4, 1927) was best-known for his incredible photographs documenting the architecture and street scenes of Paris. This book showcases the images he captured between 1898 and 1924 - images of the 'old Paris', represented with an almost surreal, dream-like quality. He photographed the seine, the streets, the incredible architecture and the facades of buildings and palaces, the courtyards, apartment interiors, stairwells, parks, shop windows and the urban environment - replete with street traders, fairgrounds and prostitutes - building an enormous artistic documentary collection of the French capital. The book has been published to accompany an exhibition organised by the Mapfre Foundation in collaboration with the Museum Carnavalet in Paris that will travel to the Fotomuseum of Rotterdam and the New Gallery of Sydney.show more
