Atget, Archivist of Paris

JANUARY 29–MAY 9, 2010

This presentation of 26 vintage prints by the celebrated French photographer Eugène Atget (1857–1927) is drawn from the ICP permanent collection. Surrealists such as Man Ray were fascinated by Atget's images of dreamlike urban spaces. As this exhibition reveals, such photographs were part of a much larger body of work that reflected Atget's systematic documentation of the historic streets, buildings, and artifacts of Old Paris. This exhibition was organized by ICP Curator Christopher Phillips.
