Schmucker Art Gallery presents an exhibition of photographs by art-historically renowned photographers Eugene Atget and Berenice Abbott. French photographer Eugene Atget captured pre-World War I Paris before many of the city’s architectural splendors were lost to modernization and war. American-born photographer Berenice Abbott used her lens to preserve the physical changes of New York during the early 1930's. This exhibition examines the work of two artists who were inextricably linked to each other and to the development of modern photography.
