EUGENE ATGET

Atget's works were never exhibited during his life, but they were included in two shows within a year of his death. Several articles on Atget—by surrealists, art critics, and Berenice Abbott—appeared in 1928 and 1929; the first book on the photographer, by Pierre MacOrlan, in 1930; and Abbott's monograph on Atget in 1931. In the span of a few years Atget's reputation as a foundational figure of modern photography had been cemented. Several leading 20th-century photographers, including Abbott, Walker Evans, and Bill Brandt, have acknowledged their debt to Atget.
