Aux Abattoirs de la Villette[1] is a series of thirty-four photographs by Eli Lotar.

Eli Lotar's reportage on the Parisian Grande halle de la Villette's slaughterhouses (1929, issue 6 of Documents) was a theme very much in line with Georges Bataille's interests in sacrificial rituals and became one of his best-known works.
