English: Jean Eugène Auguste Atget (February 12, 1857, Libourne, Gironde - August 4 1927, Paris) was a French photographer, active in Paris.

Most of Atget's work was published only after his death by Berenice Abbott in the U.S. (See Eugéne Atget and Getty Center).[1] Abbott published in 1964 a book with prints she made from Atget's negatives: The World of Atget, Horizon Press, New York 1964. Another publication was Abbott, B.; Atget, E.; Worswick, C.: Berenice Abbott and Eugene Atget, Arena Editions, Santa Fe 2002, ISBN 1892041634 (containing many previously unpublished prints). The U.S. Library of Congress has some 20 prints made by Abbott in 1956 and state that there was probably no copyright on these particular prints in their collection.[2]

All works of Atget should have publication information. According to the statement of the U.S. Library of Congress, Atget's works are technically orphan works: the U.S. publications by Abbott would make them probably U.S. works, and it is unknown who would own that copyright. Abbott clearly has a copyright on the selection and arrangement of his photographs in her books. If treated as French works, the copyright on Atget's photos may have been restored by the URAA since Atget's work was still copyrighted in France in 1996, but again it's unknown who would own such a restored copyright.
