About the Author

Berenice Abbott was born in Ohio in 1898, and first established herself in commercial portraiture in Paris and later in New York. Besides creating masterful bodies of work of the changing face of New York, scientific phenomena, Route 1, and Maine, Abbott was an inventor of photographic equipment, a pioneer in the teaching of photographic techniques, and the first and most committed person to champion the work of the turn-of-the-century French photographer, Eugène Atget. Berenice Abbott died in Maine in December 1991.

1 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Marco Antonio Abarca VINE VOICE on April 3, 2006
In 1921, with no money nor any knowledge of the French language, Berenice Abbott moved to Paris. Soon, she began travelling in the social circles of Paris' artistic avant garde. She learned photography from Man Ray and became a good friend of the celebrated Parisian photographer Eugene Atget. Inspired by Atget's passion for documenting the rapidly modernizing Paris, Abbott returned to New York City.

Berenice Abbot spent the 1930's travelling the streets of New York Street with her large format camera. She chronicled a dynamic city that would soon become the world's most important city. Abbot's urban landscapes are not for every taste. This reasonably priced volume permits the unitiated reader to explore the photographs of a major American photogapher. A good value and highly recommended.
