Berenice Abbott Evokes City of 30s


With every year that passes, Berenice Abbott looks more and more like what she is-one of the great irreducible Americans and one who will be remembered as long as there is anyone around who wants to know what America stood for and what manner of people Americans were. In her freedom of speech, thought and behavior, in her refusal to compromise and in her determination to go her own way, Berenice Abbott was recognized as an archetypal American from the moment that she presented herself in Paris as a fledgling photographer.
