[ translate ]

"Boutique rue Ste Foy 26, Paris". 1903-04/printed 1977 from the original negative. Brown-toned contact gelatin silver print on thin photographic paper. 17,8 x 23,7 cm. Copyright stamp Négatif de la collection des archives photographiques des monuments historiques of the Bibliothéque Nationale, Pierre Gassmann's signature stamp with the year 1977 on the verso.

In 1977, Pierre Gassmann reprinted some of Atget's negatives for an exhibition, yielding astonishing results. Numerous negatives by Atget contained far more details and contrasts than were discernible in his own prints. Gassmann emphasized that these prints revealed what Atget himself had observed while capturing his photographs, but that could not be fully realized with the printing techniques he employed at the time. – Slightly buckled in lower and upper edge, otherwise in excellent condition.
