About this title


Looks at the prototypes for seven books that were never published, analyzes Atget's pictures in terms of form and vision, and discusses the development of commercial photography

From Library Journal:

Eugene Atget (1856-1927) produced seven albums that systematically documented aspects of belle epoque Paris between 1909 and 1915, intending them for eventual publication. Atget's work was rescued from obscurity by the photographer Berenice Abbot, who purchased much of it after Atget's death and published it. In a learned and perceptive text that is readable and well documented, Nesbit analyzes the source of Atget's images as "commercial picture documents" produced for paying customers: builders and designers, artists, and antiquarians. The seven albums, reproduced here in their entirety for the first time, document Paris subjects, from decorative architectural details and home interiors to views of city streets and the outskirts of Paris. Extensive appendixes further document Atget's work, and the bibliography gathers relevant sources on late 19th- and 20th-century French culture. An imporant and useful book for photography, art history, and French history collections.
