Eugène Atget at the Musée Carnavalet

 In > art culture design

Running through to the end of the month is this fascinating portrait of Paris, a retrospective of works by pioneering photographer Eugène Atget (1857-1927). Dedicated to the streets of Paris, Atget attempted to document a disappearing Paris, systematically recording typical architecture, boutiques, trades and Parisian neighbourhoods such as Montmartre. One room in the exhibition is dedicated to prints collected in the 20s by Man Ray, which demonstrate Atget’s influence on the Surrealists.
Until 29 July. 10am-6pm. Closed Mon. 7€ / 5€
Musee Carnavalet, 23 rue de Sévigné, 3rd. www.carnavalet.paris.fr
