After Atget: Todd Webb Photographs New York and Paris

With an introduction by Britt Salvesen of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and an essay by exhibition curator Diana Tuite, this catalogue considers the remarkable street photography of American Todd Webb (1905–2000). Working in New York and Paris between 1945 and 1952, Webb looked to the photographs of Frenchman Eugène Atget (1857–1927) for inspiration. Adapting Atget's documentary strategies, Webb went on to produce some of the most graphically arresting and insightful images of the years following the Second World War. This 48-page catalogue accompanies an exhibition organized by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art and on view from October 28, 2011 – January 29, 2012.
