Eugene Atget / Biography & Images - Atget

A few documented facts and a handful of recollections and legends provide a scant outline of the man: He was born in Libourne, near Bordeaux, in 1857, and worked as a sailor during his youth; from the sea he turned to the stage, with no more than minor success; at forty he quit acting, and after a tentative experiment with painting Atget became a photographer, and began his true life's work. Until his death thirty years later he worked quietly at his calling. Shorpy Historic Photo Archive. 303 Gallery - Stephen Shore.
