Exhibition organized by Emma Powell
In 1925, while working in Paris as an art studio assistant, American photographer Berenice Abbott (1898–1991) befriended the French photographer Eugène Atget (1857–1927). After Atget passed away two years later, Abbott secured a selection of his glass negatives. She returned to New York City and began a quest to establish Atget’s artistic legacy.
