The comprehensive biography of the iconic twentieth-century American photographer Berenice Abbott, a trailblazing documentary modernist, author, and inventor. Berenice Abbott is to American photography as Georgia O’Keeffe is to painting or Willa Cather to letters. She was a photographer of astounding innovation and artistry, a pioneer in both her personal and professional life. Abbott’s sixty-year career established her not only as a master of American photography, but also as a teacher, writer, archivist, and inventor. Famously reticent in public, Abbott’s fascinating life has long remained a mystery—until now. In Berenice Abbott: A Life in Photography, author, archivist, and curator Julia Van Haaften brings this iconic public figure to life alongside outlandish, familiar characters from artist Man Ray to cybernetics founder Norbert Wiener. A teenage rebel from Ohio, Abbott escaped first to Greenwich Village and then to Paris—photographing, in Sylvia Beach’s words, "everyone who was anyone." As the Roaring Twenties ended, Abbott returned to New York, where she soon fell in love with art critic Elizabeth McCausland, with whom she would spend thirty years. In the 1930s, Abbott began her best-known work, Changing New York, in which she fearlessly documented the city’s metamorphosis. When warned by an older male supervisor that "nice girls" avoid the Bowery—then Manhattan’s skid row—Abbott shot back, "I’m not a nice girl. I’m a photographer…I go anywhere." This bold, feminist attitude would characterize all Abbott’s accomplishments, including imaging techniques she invented in her influential, space race–era science photography and her tenure as The New School’s first photography teacher. With more than ninety stunning photos, this sweeping, cinematic biography secures Berenice Abbott’s place in the histories of photography and modern art, while framing her incredible accomplishments as a female artist and entrepreneur.

Eugene Atgets photographs of Paris between 1898 and 1927 form the bedrock of an American modernist photographic vision. In 1927, Berenice Abbott, one of the centurys most renowned photographers in her own right, became the largest collector of Atgets work when she purchased his estate. For the next 40 years (19291969), Abbott devoted much of her creative life to popularizing the work of Atget. Representing her vision of Atgets tapestry of Parisian life, this book reproduces and discusses the rare prints created by Abbott from Atget negatives one of the few instances of one great photographer printing another great photographers work. Over 100 duotone photos are featured, some of which Abbott developed from previously unpublished Atget negatives. The Atget prints are ... a rare and subtle perception, and represent perhaps the earliest expression of true photographic art. Ansel Adams

wort und Bild fügen die Autoren in einer neuen Sicht zu einem instruktiven Diagrammkonzept zusammen. Diagramme sind Amalgame des Erkennens, aber auch, um als Erkenntnismittel verständlich zu werden, innerweltlich vorfindbare Gegenstände, mit denen kognitiv gearbeitet wird. Diagrammatisches Denken eröffnet Querverweise und ermöglicht so eine relationale, vom Erkennenden aktiv betriebene Urteilsbildung.

Die Leica-Kamera ist zweifellos eines jener zur Ikone gewordenen Objekte, die das 20. Jahrhundert charakterisiert haben und deren Nimbus unvermindert weiter wirkt. Von ihrem genialen Schöpfer, Oskar Barnack, in die Welt gesetzt, eröffnete sie der bis dahin mehr oder weniger statischen Fotografie völlig neue, geradezu revolutionäre Möglichkeiten. Sie trug damit ganz entscheidend dazu bei, ihren Zeitgenossen und allen nachwachsenden Generationen die Welt in Bildern ganz neu zu zeigen. Ein Aspekt, den dieses Buch besonders herausstellt, indem es die technische Entwicklung von der Ur-Leica bis zu den jüngsten Hich-Tech-Kameras der legendären Marke nicht nur dokumentiert, sondern auch in den zeithistorischen, gesellschaftlichen und ästhetischen Kontext setzt. Faszinierend illustriert und faktenreich ist es Lesebuch, Nachschlagewerk und Kaleidoskop eines Jahrhunderts zugleich.
