About French photographer Jean Eugène Auguste ATGET (1857-1927)

After Eugène ATGET had spent some time photographing as a hobby, he made photography his profession. His subject was Paris, which he loved. Remarkable are his series 'Paris pittoresques' and 'Le vieux Paris'. With his large format camera he documented and catalogued the Old Paris for his collection, which he sold in 1920 and saved from further damage. Through Man RAY he met the young photographer Berenice ABBOTT, who acquired the remaining collection from the estate, published it in books and finally sold it to the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
