Eugène Atget’s Early 20th-Century Photographs of Paris

Eugène Atget’s early 20th century photographs of Paris are currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art. Atget spent his career focusing his lens on the architectural details of building facades, window displays, and Paris’ great parks. His images have a real dreamy quality due to his use of long exposure.
