Piercing Time: Paris after Marville & Atget 1865-2012... A project by Peter Sramek that examines documentary photography through juxtaposing contemporary rephotographs of Paris with photos taken by Marville and Atget. Peter Sramek has uploaded four fascinating videos detailing the project, take a look here.

Peter Sramek's photographs revisit Parisian views by Charles Marville from 1865-77. Join the campaign to support quality production of the book Piercing Time.

The b
ook documents 184 street locations of Paris and will be illustrated with almost 500 images – by Charles Marville (1860s-70s), Eugène Atget (early 1900s) and Peter Sramek (present day). Related historical maps will locate the images accurately. Texts have been written by historians Min K Lee and Shalini Le Gall, as well as Peter Sramek and interviews with Parisians will bring in a contemporary popular view of urban change. Historical images are coming from the Musée Carnavalet with whom Sramek has worked closely and also from the Bibliothèque Historique, Bibliothèque Nationale and MOMA (NYC).
