The Unknown Berenice Abbott

Edited by Ron Kurtz, Hank O’Neal. Text by Ron Kurtz, Hank O’Neal.

The five comprehensive volumes of The Unknown Berenice Abbott present hundreds of unseen and till now unpublished images from the sweep of Berenice Abbott's seminal career. New York--Early Work contains rare images of New York after the Wall Street Crash of 1929 made by Abbott with a small hand-held camera as sketches for large format photographs. The American Scene showcases photographs from Abbott's journeys through America in 1933, 1934 and 1935, hardly seen since that time. Deep Woods presents Abbott's 1943 and 1967 images of the Red River Logging Company in California's High Sierra Mountains, her first such documentary project. Greenwich Village collects for the first time the spectrum of Abbott's photographs of Manhattan's beloved Lower West Side neighborhood, her home when she left Ohio in 1918 and again in the mid-1930s. Finally, U.S. 1, U.S.A., including Abbott's first experimental work in color, records her ambitious trip down the length of U.S. Route 1 in 1954, a precursor to Robert Frank's The Americans.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Bookforum

Prudence Peiffer

The more we see of Abbott’s oeuvre, the more we realize that while its space is expansive, its scale (even when picturing a cluster of skyscrapers or ponderosa pines) is against grandness. Her photographs locate a visual detail at work in the world, and let it slowly activate an ordinary scene, whether it’s the shadow of a building, falling hard and flat against another, or the synchronous expression in the eyes of a birdsmith and his dog.
