“He was an urbanist historian,
a Balzac of the camera,
from whose work
we can weave a large tapestry
of French civilization.”
A century ago, Eugène Atget roamed the streets of Paris, photographing the city inside and out.
Bringing together his splendid, romantic portraits of authentic Old Paris with photographs of contemporary interiors, this compilation explores the city from opposite ends of the 20th century, revealing its enduring characteristics and distinctive style.
