The Atget Feeling

Recently walking around Łódź, I have been having the feeling that this place is one big construction site. Roads are closed buildings covered in scaffolding or just simply pulled down. Then I remember this is what change really looks like. People talk about a city changing but it is not a magician’s trick, one day old and the next new. Change is gradual and sometimes inconvenient.
A photographer, who pioneered documentary photography with his determination of photographing all the architecture and street scenes of Paris before its modernisation at the turn of the 20th century, was Eugene Ategt.
