Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Atget's pictures are wonderful; Proust is in a class of his own. This coffee-table book is a forced marriage that does credit to neither man's work. The plates have a muddy, sepia tone. The Proust quotations are unsourced.

Hans-Christian Adams, John Szarkowski Peter Sramek, and Christopher Rauschenberg's individual books on Atget are much to be preferred.

Format: Hardcover
Trottenberg's book aspires as a historical document of Paris through the eyes of Atget and words of Proust. The volume offers an abundance of inky Atget images from the collection of Bernice Abbott, narrated by excerpts from Proust's remarkable tome "Remembrance of Things Past." The author states that the pairing is "a loose one" only, but the effect can be engrossing. The book, not to be mistaken for a typical 'art' volume emphasizing rich reproductions, is printed on creamy uncoated paper, and succeeds as an exploration of a profound place and time.
