During the summer of 2011, Hallie Jordan received a grant to go to Paris and study the famous photographer Eugene Atget who photographed Paris during the early 1900s. For her project she located where Atget took several of his photographs and found what was in those exact spots today.

When she arrived in Paris completely unfamiliar with the city Jordan was not sure what she would find or what kind of photographs she wanted to make. After a four week stay, she located many of Atget’s photo sites and came away with a set of photographs of her own. Jordan’s photographs recall Atget’s, in that many were made in the same area as his, but are distinctly hers. This exhibition is based on a book she made of her experience and shows a comparison between Paris 100 years  ago and today.

This exhibition is in conjunction with FotoFest 2012 Biennial and is free and open to the public.
