Photographer Eugene Atget

10 May 2018

PG enjoyed the lovely cinematography of yesterday’s preview of The Guardians.

He decided to play around with some of the photographs of early French photographer, Eugène Atget.

Atget created the original photo upon which the following image is based. The photo was made at court on Rue de Valence in Paris where an early motorcycle and automobile mechanic appears to have set up shop.

You can click on the photo to see a larger version that includes additional PG tweaks.


Here’s the original:
