Remembered for his pioneering work in the documentary photography genre, this French artist captured Parisian city scenes in the years immediately preceding the French capital's architectural modernization.

Before Fame

During the late 1870s and the 1880s, he pursued a career as an actor. He began his photography career toward the end of the '80s and started his famous Old Paris Collection a decade later.

Born in Libourne, France, to Clara-Adeline Hourlier Atget and Jean-Eugene Atget, he grew up primarily in Bordeaux, cared for by his grandparents (his parents both passed away during his early childhood years). He was the longtime partner of French stage performer Valentine Delafosse Compagnon.
