"Between 1888 and 1927 Eugene Atget carefully photographed Paris and its environs, capturing in thousands of photographs the city's parks, streets, and buildings as well as its diverse inhabitants. His images preserved the vanishing architecture of the ancien regime as Paris grew into a modern capital and established Atget as one of the twentieth century's greatest and most revered photographers." "In the late 1990s Christopher Rauschenberg revisited and rephotographed many of Atget's original locations. Paris Changing features seventy-six pairs of images, beautifully reproduced in duotone. By meticulously replicating the emotional as well as aesthetic qualities of Atget's images, Rauschenberg vividly captures both the changes the city has undergone and its enduring beauty. His work is both an homage to his predecessor and an artistic study of Paris in its own right." "Each site is indicated on a map of the city, inviting readers to follow in the steps of Atget and Rauschenberg. Essays by Clark Worswick and Alison Nordstrom give insight into Atget's life and situate Rauschenberg's work in the context of other rephotography projects. The book concludes with an epilogue by the well-known art publisher Rosamond Bernier and a portfolio of Atget-inspired images of contemporary Paris by Rauschenberg."--BOOK JACKET.
