Description

Paris frozen in time: The perfect introduction to Eug ne Atget's photography "All I can say: get collecting. These books are an incredible value." - Image, London, on the photography book series

Eug ne Atget (1857-1927) 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. Text in English, French, and German.
