Eugène Atget

Beautiful photographs. Eugène Atget “was a French flâneur and a pioneer of documentary photography, noted for his determination to document all of the architecture and street scenes of Paris before their disappearance to modernization.” (as summarized by Wikipedia)

Here are a couple of my favorites from this book…

Eugène Atget, Coiffeur
Coiffeur, Avenue de l’Observatoire, 1926

Eugène Atget, Entrée de la cour du Dragon
Entrée de la cour du Dragon sur la rue du Dragon, 1913
