A Midwesterner who first came to New York in 1918, Abbott (1898-1991) was one of the twentieth century's most important photographers, and her images have come to define 1930s New York. With the financial support of the WPA's Federal Art Project from 1935 to 1939, she was able to realize her ambition to document a "changing New York." This deluxe hardcover edition features more than 300 duotones -- the complete WPA project -- and 113 variant images, drawings, and period maps, as well as an explanatory text on Abbott's life and work. - from publisher description

Berenice Abbott, Eugene Atget by Eugène Atget( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 303 libraries worldwide
"Eugene Atget's photographs of Paris are among the greatest works in photography made at any time, in any place. Spanning a twenty-nine-year period (1898-1927), Atget's photographs are literally the Paris of our collective imagination." "In 1927 Berenice Abbot became the largest collector of Atget's work when she purchased his estate. For the next forty years, Abbott devoted much of her creative life to popularizing Atget's work. Our vision of Eugene Atget and Atget's Paris was literally Abbott's invention. Drawn from work in previously unpublished archives, this book details Abbott's rare prints of Atget's negatives for the first time." "Today, Atget's work forms the bedrock of an American modernist photographic vision. Yet the Abbott/Atget printings are among the least known and most vibrant prints in the photographic medium. This work represents one of the few instances of one great photographer printing another great photographer's work. Representing perhaps only one percent of Atget's surviving work, the prints are Abbott's vision of the photographer who single-handedly changed photographic modernism in the twentieth century."--Jacket

In this redesigned and expanded version of a classic Aperture book, the work of Berenice Abbott (1898-1991) is introduced by historian Julia Van Haaften, and includes new, image-by-image commentary and a chronology of this artist's life. An innovative documentary photographer, Abbott pioneered the depiction of scientific subject matter and photographed the fast-changing landscape of her times. Abbott studied journalism for a year in Ohio before moving to New York in 1918 to study sculpture, where she met Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray. She later moved to France in the 1920s and worked for Ray in his portrait studio before setting out on her own. Her portraits captured many individuals associated with avant-garde art movements, including author James Joyce and artist Max Ernst. Moving back to New York at the end of the decade, she began her renowned Changing New York series (later published as a book in 1939) and went on to become picture editor for Science Illustrated
