  Berenice Abbott , Photographs - review Work of photographer who assisted Man Ray and specialised in documenting the changing cityscape of s New York goes on show at the Jeu de Paume. ABBOTT "Changing (Photography): Berenice New Edn SIGNED - York" 1st 1st York" - ABBOTT New Edn "Changing SIGNED Berenice (Photography): Inventing the Abbotts-Sue Miller-SIGNED!!-TRUE First Edition/1st Printing-RARE!!

After eight years in Paris, Abbott moved to New York in to document the modern transformation of the city. The resulting book Changing New York () received critical acclaim and has continued to resonate to this ality: American.   Berenice Abbott had starved in New York and was starving in Paris when Man Ray hired her for his darkroom. It was Abbott’s idea. He had complained about his latest “know-it-all” studio assistant, and Abbott jumped in: “What about me? I don’t know a thing.” Her rapid learning surprised them both. “I liked photography. Photography liked me,” she recalled. Eventually Ray suggested.

The Realisms of Berenice Abbott provides the first in-depth consideration of the work of photographer Berenice Abbott. Though best known for her s documentary images of New York City, this book examines a broad range of Abbott’s work—including portraits from the s, little known and uncompleted projects from the s, and experimental science photography from the s. “Changing New York not only fulfills Abbott’s criterion for the historical importance of the documentary mode, but also demonstrates its power as a medium of personal expression” (Parr & Badger I), providing “a distinctive interpretation of New York as well as a priceless document thereof” (Icons of Photography, ).
