"This catalog volume 'Eugène Atget. Retrospective' was published to accompany the major survey exhibitions in Paris in 2007 and in the Gropius-Bau Berlin in 2007/2008 on the occasion of the 150th birthday of the French photographer.
The volume 'Eugène Atget. Retrospective' contains the most important pictures by Eugène ATGET, taken between 1900 and 1925. In instructive essays, experts on his work characterize the broad range of themes and motifs of his photographic oeuvre and trace the reception of ATGET by the French Surrealists, in Germany and the USA. A volume that presents the latest findings on Eugène ATGET at the time and at the same time provides an introduction to the fascinating imagery of a photographer who represents the beginning of modern photography.
