Summary "Berenice Abbott was one of the first people to photograph New York City. Seen through her camera lens the city became a living entity, a remarkable character whom visitors can now pursue as they move through its crowded streets, looking upwards to discover the modern beauty of its skyscrapers. This publication presents Berenice Abbott's work in several themes: her portraits, photographs of the city and scientific photographs"-- Provided by publisher.
