The Art Gallery of NSW is about to open a brilliant exhibition of Eugène Atget prints. Atget was a street photographer in the late 19th/early 20th century. Paris and its people was his main subject. His city was undergoing rapid change during this time, and he was there with his camera to capture interesting people and scenes over a few decades. His enigmatic images inspired numerous artists including Brassaï, the Surrealists, Walker Evans and Berenice Abbott and Man Ray, who collected some of the photographs included in the exhibition.
The exhibition includes over 200 original prints from this master of street photography.
Head to the Gallery of NSW website for more details.
