Berenice Abbott: Portraits of Modernity

Text by Estrella de Diego, Gary Van Zante, Cara Hoffman.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Berenice Abbott: Portraits of Modernity.'

This handsome publication presents legendary American photographer Berenice Abbott’s work in three categories: her portraits, photographs of the city and scientific photographs. The opening section presents Abbott’s portraits of mold-breaking individuals who changed the world from the mid-1920s onward such as Djuna Barnes, the New Yorker's Janet Flanner, Jean Cocteau and James Joyce.
The second part offers a dazzling portrait of New York which takes into account Abbott’s relations with and her fascination for the work of Eugène Atget by including an introductory group of his photographs, which she printed from his negatives.
The third and final section focuses on Abbott’s scientific photographs, which she started to produce in the late 1940s.
Berenice Abbott was undoubtedly one of the defining portraitists of New York. Shops, people, bridges, streets, interiors, famous buildings under construction seen from outside or from above (the same ones that are visible today from the highway that runs round Manhattan) together make up this portrait.
Berenice Abbott (1891–1991) was born in Springfield, Ohio. She began her photography career in 1923, as Man Ray's darkroom assistant. Her work is collected in some of the most prestigious museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art.

'Berenice Abbott: Portraits of Modernity' is new from Fundacíon Mapfre

"Self Portrait—Distortion" (c. 1930) is reproduced from Fundacíon Mapfre's beautiful new duotone-printed Berenice Abbott monograph, Portraits of Modernity. Collecting Abbott's portraits of the most exciting, provocative and often gender-bending intellectuals of her time, her fearless photographs of all corners of 1930s New York and her documentation of scientific phenomena, including experiments with plants, gears, lenses, pendula, magnets and more, this 264-page clothbound volume is the perfect overview. It's also a glimpse into the pioneering spirit of the early twentieth century avant-garde. Eleven photographs by Abbott's hero and mentor, Eugene Atget, put the work in context. continue to blog
