Around the turn of the 20th century, photographer Eugène Atget broke new artistic ground in his obsessive chronicling of Paris and its environs. Walking at dawn with his heavy camera, he captured the soul of the city by focusing on its old alleyways, picturesque shop fronts, architectural details, staircases, and street vendors. This focused exhibition features highlights from the Getty’s recent acquisition of his work, which continues to influence photographers today.
