Description
Soon after moving to France, photographer Man Ray began collecting the works of his forebear Eugène Atget, whose pictures exhaustively surveyed Paris in the late 19th and early 20th century. Man Ray and his surrealist colleagues admired Atget's willingness to photograph people and scenes that weren't traditionally considered beautiful, including abandoned amusement parks, kitsch window displays, decaying buildings, and the city's less prosperous residents. Forty duotone images appear here, alongside Susan Laxton's text, which traces the genesis of surrealism and its parallels with Atget's maverick career.
