Gd Trianon (Escalier), 1905 by Eugene Atget

The early 20th century, Frenchman Eugene Atget, set out to photograph the world beyond his home. In thirty years he had amassed a collection of Parisian architecture ranging from broad views to detail shots. Documenting architecture through the process of albumen prints, Atget’s work was lauded by surreal and modern artists of his day and his work is still revered to date.

Marc Riboud, another French photographer, has taken this documentary process even further – pressing beyond the boundaries of Paris and even beyond France to India and China. Documenting more of the country’s dramatic changes and rapid development than any other non-native photographer, Riboud’s focus shifted from people to the Huang Shan mountains and their mists which have inspired artists and poets alike for millennia.
