Eugène & Berenice Pioneers of Urban Photography

'Eugène & Berenice Pioneers of Urban Photography'

Often called the father of modern photography, Frenchman Eugène Atget embraced a heartfelt realism that influenced generations of younger photographers—including an American, Berenice Abbott, who championed him in his later career and carried on his legacy. This film examines the work of both artists, juxtaposing Atget’s Paris oeuvre with Abbott’s views of New York, describing how their paths crossed amidst the Parisian avant-garde, shedding light on their unlikely connection to the surrealists, and helping viewers understand the aesthetic and personal bond they shared.

Rare archival interview footage featuring Berenice Abbott is included, along with commentary from photographers working today.

Duration: 52 mins. Feature film is viewable on virtually any device – computers, iPads, iPhones, digital TVs.
