Julia Van Haaften’s Berenice Abbott: A Life in Photography is the first major .

Julia Van Haaften’s Berenice Abbott: A Life in Photography is the first major biography of Abbott in more than a generation. She herself seldom talked about her private life, perhaps because she was reared at a time when a young woman’s identity was defined by her marital status. And Abbott had no intention of marrying. When she was in her 30s, she met Elizabeth McCausland, a well-educated critic and historian of American art who became her life partner.

Berenice Abbott was a pioneer of documentary photography. A tireless proponent of realism, she achieved distinction within several genres of photography, over successive periods of her career. In France in the 1920s she assisted Man Ray in his portrait studio before setting out on her own. Her distinctive portraits made during the ’20s captured artists in Paris with a timeless dignity. Her subjects included photographer Eugène Atget, whose reputation today results from Abbott’s recognition and advocacy of his work.

Photographs by Berenice Abbott Essay by Julia Van Haaften. Berenice Abbott has said of photography, "If it is to be utterly honest and direct, it should be related to the pulse of the times-the pulse of today. In pioneering scientific images and photographs of the fast-changing landscape, Abbott captured the tempo of her times in work of enduring significance. While living in Paris during the 1920's, Abbott began working as a darkroom assistant in Man Ray's portrait business. Soon she was independent and was able to establish her own studio. In this selection of her wide-ranging work, Aperture acknowledges the contribution Berenice Abbott has made to photography.

by Julia Van Haaften. Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.

New american copies of one of the best photo collection (French's Photopoche, now Photofile) with all the greatest masters of photography.
As usual, very nice printing, great text and sellection. A good book to get "the best of" at a nice price.

The photos are magnificent; Abbott was a master of the lens. Her angles of objects are truly unique, as well as the time spans that extend over decades, capturing a variety of subjects.
