The World of Abbott and Atget


Berneice Abbot & Eugene Atget


Paris and New York. Two cities whose names are synonymous with passion. Both of these cities were extensively photographed during their golden ages and the results produced some of the greatest iconic images in the history of photography. The two artists who carried out this work were linked together in a very special way... we explore the life and work of both Abbott and Atget, how they were linked and how their extensive works represent classic urban photography. Both of their lives were difficult and passionate. This is a fitting tribute to their work and a detailed look at the cities that inspired them.
