This image resides in the collections of the Bibliothèque nationale de France.Amazing, vintage and well-known albumen photograph of a doors on rue Guisarde in early 1900s Paris by Eugene Atget.Atget (1857-1927) was an incredibly important french photographer who produced an archive of close to 10,000 8x10 glass plate negative images of his city Paris. His documentation of architecture, gardens, doorknobs, statues and people of Paris was done as a basically unknown during his lifetime and he made his living by selling prints of his images to locals and to artists who used his images as models for paintings and by architects for models. He printed his own albumen prints from the large negatives he shot and gained the attention of Berenice Abbot who purchased some of his photographs, then later by Man Ray who published some of his images in a surrealist magazine even using one for a cover. He gained a little attention towards the end of his life but died in 1927- Berenice Abbot then purchased the remains of his archive and negatives with Julian Levy and put together the 1930 book PHOTOGRAPH DE PARIS- which became a very important photography history book. His works then became widely exhibited and in 1968 the collection was purchased by the Museum of Modern Art. Atget's work is extremely historically important and his prints are beautiful and collected by museums throughout the world.
