Eugene Atget (1857-1927) I'd like to introduce in my blog photographers that I feel inspired by. Atget mostly wandered the streets, parks, graveyards of his home town recording images of what interested him. Fortunately for him his home town was PARIS, FRANCE. I believe Walker Evans said of him that he followed his own agenda rather then trying to create work done in the style of that time. He also liked to photograph trees which are one of my favorite subjects. He didn't seem to be very interested in people for subjects and many of his cityscapes seem to be devoid of citizens as if he was all alone. I like that quality in his pictures.
