Eugène Atget (1857-1927), a photographer in Paris at the turn of the twentieth century, is one of the most unique people in the history of photography. At first, regarded as the memory of Paris in the 1900s, his work was propelled into the history of the latest artists by the surrealists, Man Ray and Berenice Abbott.
More than 4000 photographs accompanied by commentaries and 30 minutes of audiovisuals, offer the opportunity to browse through Atget’s œuvre. Thematic albums and research tools allow the viewer to select photos via multi-photo patchwork grids and to appreciate their quality and diversity. Finally, navigation using various interactive maps recreates a visit to the old Paris that Atget himself had observed.
