Summary

By the end of his life, Atget had made more than eight thousand photographs of Paris and its environs—one of the largest picture archives of “the city of light” ever created. He organized them into categories such as Interiors, Old Paris, Vehicles, and Petits Métiers (trades and professions) and sold them to artists and city institutions. While his principle clientele changed over time, Atget continued to frequent artists’ ateliers and cafés until the end of his life, offering his pictures to those able to see their intrinsic worth.
Eugène Atget (French, Libourne 1857–1927 Paris)
