Eugène Atget

Eugène Atget: Paris 1898-1924
by Frits Gierstberg
Publisher's 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 '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.
