Atget Cour St. Gervais et Protais Archival Print
Judith Joy Ross has long admired the photographs of Eugene Atget (French, 1857 - 1927), known for his views of the streets, buildings, and gardens of Paris. Both artists used the same technology--a large-format view camera and printing-out paper--to make their pictures. More significantly, the two share a commitment to chronicling the complexity and humanity of their world through pictures of ordinary subjects. However, their approaches are the inverse of one another: Ross seldom photographs unpeopled scenes while Atget made only a handful of portraits.
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is home to a substantial collection of Atget's photographs, and Ross herself choose this selection of prints for the exhibition.
