Tour Eiffel foudroyée

On the evening of 3rd June1902, Gabriel Loppé was setting up his camera on the balcony of his apartment when a summer storm began to rage over Paris. Just across the river, bolts of lightning began to cascade down M. Eiffel’s gigantic, latticed tower. At twenty past nine Loppé took this sublime picture. The Tour Eiffel foudroyée photograph, measuring only 17 x 12 cm, may have indelibly linked Loppé’s name to the history of photography, but it remains one of the most vivid reminders of who he was and what he represented: a man of his time. Read more about this historic photograph here. Please contact William Mitchell for further information or to schedule a viewing of the photograph.
