EUGENE ATGET: His project, Old Paris begun around 1897 and ending in the 20s focused on the disappearance of the 19th century’s architectural dream realm as the city was swept by modernization schemes.  He was later greatly appreciated by the surrealists, who saw him as a forerunner to their work.  Walter Benjamin stated that Atget’s images unintentionally, but uncannily, appeared like the ‘scene of a crime’.  Bernice Abbott then a young photographer working in Paris for Man Ray bought Atget’s archive after his death and began successfully  promoting his work.
