From the 1850s to the 1950s, Paris served as a powerful artistic incubator for photographers who learned to capture the fluidity and spontaneity of the city’s street life. In his introduction, David Travis—former curator of Photography at the Art Institute of Chicago—explains how artists such as Atget, Lartigue, Doisneau, and many more built upon the work of their predecessors to hone an entirely new approach to their craft.
