A Tale of Two Cities: Eugene Atget's Paris and Berenice Abbott's New York, January 17 -March 16, 2014
examines the work of Eugene Atget (1857-1927) and Berenice Abbott (1898-1991),
two artists who were intricately connected to each other and to the development
of modern photography. After working as a commercial seaman and a stage
actor, Eugene Atget turned to photography. He was dismayed by the extent of
architectural history being destroyed as Paris was being modernized, and began
photographing the city’s neighborhoods, store fronts and streets. Berenice
Abbott met Atget in 1925 when she worked as a darkroom assistant to Man Ray. After
purchasing Atget’s glass plates and negatives from his estate when he died, it
became Abbott’s life’s work to publish the work of Atget and introduce him to a
larger public. She returned to New York after an eight year absence, and began
a project to document the constantly changing city landscape. Her photographs,
like Atget’s Paris photographs, are records of the essential character of the
city. This exhibition is organized by the Syracuse University Art Collection.
