Abstract:

"During the first quarter of the twentieth century the short stocky figure of photographer Eugene Atget was a familiar sight in Paris. From 1898 until his death in 1927, Atget took approximately five thousand negatives in the city, systematically documenting its historic core; its building and monuments, its ancient streets and civic spaces, its public parks and gardens. Atget chose not to represent a particular site by a single, definitive photograph; instead he consistently produced sequences of interrelated images to create a cumulative portrait of each setting." "Featuring 240 of Atget's photographs - only a few of which have previously been published - this book examines Atget's approach to photography by studying these sequences; his pictures of an individual building, a street an intersection, the quays along the river Seine, and a neighborhood. Assembling these images into coherent groups, Unknown Paris displays the direct and integral relationship between the photographer's working method and his subject matter in turn revealing the distinctive character of old Paris itself."--Jacket.
