Paris: Walking with Atget
September 5 - October 6, 2012
Paris: Walking with Atget, is an exhitbit displaying the work of photographer Christopher Rauschenberg. For these photographs, Rauschenberg revisited Paris locations photographed by the French photographer Eugene Atget in the early 20th century, rephotographing the same views at the end of the 20th century to reveal what had changed and what had not. Paris: Walking with Atget includes 40 of Rauschenberg’s silver prints, many of them paired with copies of Atget’s original images.
Christopher Rauschenberg has photographed in over twenty countries and has had over one hundred solo exhibits in Europe, South America, and the United States. He is the co-founder and Board Chairman of Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon, where he has produced hundreds of photographic exhibits. He also organized the Portland Grid Project of two-dozen photographers who have for the last 17 years systematically documented the city of Portland.
