"When I received the assignment to photograph Paris, I was fortunate enough to have no preconceived ideas. Atget's work was not known at the times, and it was only in later years that I realized how closely some of my impressions approached his images. This picture of the god and the woman in the Jardin du Louvre is unposed, and I came upon it while walking in garden."
