Education Night - Eugène Atget

Master of Photography Series: Art historian Jeffrey Martz discusses Eugène Atget

You are invited to join photographer and art historian Jeffrey Martz for an evening celebrating the life and work of the most influential practitioners in the history of photography.

This series will use the best possible reproductions and an interactive format and is intended for both the newcomer and the curious expert looking to contribute to the discussion.

Eugène Atget

Practically unknown during his lifetime and practicing an archaic working method; Eugène Atget is the central figure bridging the documentary world of the 19th century and the straight photography world of the 20th. His resolute commitment to visual facts mingles with a perfect understanding of light and space to create images that are both objective and poetic. This enigmatic man dies unknown yet goes on to inspire some of the greatest careers in the history of the medium.


Instructor Bio: A seasoned traveler and fine art photographer, Jeffrey Martz earned his MFA in Photography from Utah State in 1997. He has taught graduate Art History at his alma mater, and currently teaches Photography & Art History at Sir Francis Drake High School in San Anselmo.
