Atget's Parisby Angelika Taschen, Taschen
This abbreviated volume contains a selection
Eugene Atget roamed the streets with his bulky large format camera, systematically cataloguing turn-of-the-century Old Paris down to the very smallest details. His skilled, wonderfully atmospheric photos of Paris's parks, buildings, streets, store windows, prostitutes, workers, and even door handles are a joy to behold.
This abbreviated volume contains a selection of Atget's best photographs and is the perfect introduction to this master photographer's work.
