Paris Revisited - Set 3      1984

Peter Marshall




These are some of my favourite pictures, mostly taken while I was exploring areas of Paris where Atget worked, which I had plotted on a map of the city in the six months before my visit. He was very concerned about capturing "Old Paris", the areas of the city which reflected a culture that was fast disappearing, so it wasn't a suprise to find that, around 56 years after his death, much of it had disappeared, and had been replaced by the new. More surprising in fact that so much seemed perhaps very little different from his times. Going back recently I think more has change in the last 25 years since I took these pictures than before.
