Thursday’s Obsession – Eugene Atget

A 19th century French photographer with an eye for the secret, mist driven Paris, Atget was a master of brume and shadow.  His photographs are evocative of an older, decaying Paris, a lost city somewhere between night and dawn, a city of light and yet without.

More, more, more of ethereal Paris, you say?
