Snappy Stieglitz

When a painter came to him and said: “Of course this is not art but we would like to paint the way you photograph”, Alfred Stieglitz replied: “I don’t know anything about art, but for some reason or other I have never wanted to photograph the way you paint.”

Eugène Atget, Paris 1927 -by Berenice Abbott
Berenice Abbott took 2 portraits of Atget very shortly before his death. Although Atget was well known in his time, the group of surrealists “discovered” him (in particular his photos of stores’ windows with mannequins and glass reflections). Most of Atget’s work was published in 1927, another part was bought by Julien Levy on the suggestion of Berenice Abbott; she was then able to exhibit and publish Atget in the States few years latter and allow a renewed interest. Thanks to her too then!
