Eugène Atget exhibit at MoMA

MoMA in New York will soon host from 6 February to 9 April next year, a retrospective on French photographer Eugène Atget (1857-1927). The title of the exhibition, “Documents pour artistes”, refers to the sign which hung on the door of Atget’s studio in Paris. Atget officially started photography in 1890, and aimed to capture the city of Paris in order to offer the material documentation to other artists.
