|Atget photographed by Bernice Abbott in 1927|
This retrospective, which includes well-known images and others, unpublished and less known, portrays an atypical view of Paris, far from the clichés of the Belle Epoque. Visitors will discover the streets of Paris of yesteryear, the gardens, the Seine, the old shops and small business vendors.
There is also is a room presenting a set of 43 prints by the photographer, collected in the 1920s by American artist Man Ray, this album, now in Rochester, opens an understanding on Atget's influence on the Surrealists.
Accompanying the exhibition is a 346 page catalogue published by Editions Gallimard.
