Paris transformed into the “City of Light” through grand-scale architectural renovations, demolitions, and new construction set in motion during the Second Empire (1852–70). A City Transformed: Photographs of Paris, 1850–1900, on view in the Eugene V. Thaw Gallery, explores the documentary nature of photography during this era. The exhibition includes works by many of the period’s leading architectural photographers, including Édouard Baldus and Charles Marville.
