Product Description

Atget (HC)

By John Szarkowski

This lushly illustrated volume presents the work of French photographer Eugène Atget through one hundred carefully selected photographs. Atget devoted more than thirty years of his life to the task of documenting the city of Paris and the surrounding countryside, and in the process he created an oeuvre that brilliantly explains the richness, complexity, and authentic character of his native culture.

John Szarkowski, head of MoMA’s Department of Photography from 1962 to 1991 and an acknowledged master of the art of looking at photographs, explores the unique sensibilities that made Atget one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century and a vital influence on the development of modern and contemporary photography. An introductory text and commentaries on Atget’s photographs form an extended essay on the remarkable visual intelligence displayed in these subtle, sometimes enigmatic pictures..

An E-book edition of this title is also available.
