Share on twitter Share on facebook Share on email Share on print Share on gmail More Sharing Services 12 NEW YORK, NY.- Berenice Abbott was one of the most versatile photographic artists of the twentieth century and her work has been published and publicized since the beginning of her career in 1925. She is best known for her Paris portraits of the 1920s and her documentation of New York City in the 1930s but, like most great artists, Abbott''s reputation has rested on a small portion of her life''s work. For every time one of her most famous photographs has been published there are many others that could have served the same purpose but were not used because they are less well known. In Abbott''s case there is an unusually large body of unknown work because during the most potentially creative time of her life, the circumstances of her existence were very complicated, largely due to lack of work and income, particularly between the years 1929 to 35 and 1940 to 1959. Many of the photographs she did manage to create in those years were not sufficiently commercial to attract a publisher and she was financially unable to publicize them on her own, develop a project to its natural conclusion or, in some instances, even undertake a project of interest. The Unknown Abbott attempts to correct this situation and make some of Abbott''s outstanding but largely unknown work available to a wider public. Gerhard Steidl had published the two volume Berenice Abbott in 2008 and Documenting Science in 2012. These books are currently out of print but are going to be reissued by Steidl in the near future. Steidl met with the editors Hank O''Neal and Ron Kurtz in late January 2011 to discuss future Abbott projects. This was when they began thinking of a series of Abbott books, dealing with various aspects of her career. Hank O''Neal and Ron Kurtz have chosen to present five volumes of work, ranging from her earliest photographs in New York City to documents of American cities before the Civil War, vigorous lumberjacks in California''s High Sierra Mountains, the sophisticated bohemia of Greenwich Village as well as the amusements of Daytona Beach. The Unknown Abbott is a very ambitious project that will present hundreds of outstanding Abbott images for the first time. Her reputation is already very secure, but these previously unknown images will further clarify the range of her photographic activity beyond her portraits in Paris, Changing New York and Documenting Science. Volume I New York - Early Work 1929-1931 Berenice Abbott returned to New York from Paris in 1929. Her plan was to continue her career as a portraitist and begin to document the city she''d come to love. The Crash of 1929 sidetracked Abbott; her portrait business collapsed and she was unable to fund her documentary project of the city. Undaunted, she continued to photograph New York with a small, hand-held camera, making sketches for large format photographs she wished to take in the future. These photographs are Abbott''s first work in New York and are not only extraordinary but have rarely been seen or published. Volume II The American Scene, 1930 - 1935 The great American economic depression of the early 1930s hit Abbott very hard. Portraits and other photographic assignments were a luxury most people could not afford. As she struggled during these years Abbott did undertake three projects, two with the support of the architectural historian, Henry Russell Hitchcock, and one on her own. The two Hitchcock assignments resulted in photographic trips throughout America in 1933 and 1934, and exhibitions in 1934 and 1936, entitled American Cities Before the Civil War - The Urban Vernacular of the Thirties, Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: 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.

Review: 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.
