Magnificent photobook about Eugène Atget – Paris

I bought amazing book. Genial old photos from Paris. Atget wrote in 1920, „I may say that I have in my possession all of Old Paris”. Indeed, he knew the city like the back of his hand and had the pictures to prove it. He captured the historical, atmospheric Paris: churches, monuments, and buildings, as well as bars, shop windows, street-peddlers, and prostitutes. Traversing all of its layers, he immortalized the true spirit of Old Paris.
