Eastman House: Atget

Going up to the Eastman house was a lot of fun, I have been there before but i had a totally different experience. Atget print up close where so beautiful, no remake can do them justice, It was interesting to learn of his life and how he didn’t wanted to be published, I found that astounding because now a days we work so hard to be noticed in the world, That if we don’t get are worked recognized its not worth calling it art, there is so much pressure to become famous, and for Atget there was more in life to being recognized for his work, he saw him self as simple person not some wonderful photographer, looking at his prints i was thrown, by the clarity that he inscribed within the simplicity of his prints, they seem peaceful to me, the capture the moment of silence before the bustle when the city was just it self before the people came.
