- KurzbeschreibungThis is one in a series of books to be published by Steidl that will explore Berenice Abbott&8217;s exceptional body of work.<br>Abbott began her photographic career in 1925, taking portraits in Paris of some the most celebrated artists and writers<br>of the day including Marie Laurencin, Jean Cocteau, Peggy Guggenheim and James Joyce. Within a year her work was<br>exhibited and acclaimed. Paris Portraits 1925&8211;30 features the clear, honest results of Abbott&8217;s earliest photographic<br>project and illustrates the philosophy of all her subsequent work. For this landmark book, 115 portraits of 83 subjects<br>have been scanned from the original glass negatives, the full negatives have been printed, and a die-cut overleaf<br>presents each portrait incorporating Abbott&8217;s cropping instructions.<br>Berenice Abbott, born in Springfield, Ohio in 1898, was a dominant figure in twentieth-century American photography.<br>Abbott moved to Paris from New York in 1921, and in 1923, after many false starts, was hired by her friend Man Ray.<br>He was looking for an assistant who knew nothing about photography whom he could teach. Abbott learned quickly and<br>within a year was taking her own photographs. Her first solo exhibition in 1926 was a success, and for the next 65 years<br>Abbott mastered a wide range of subjects. Highlights of Abbott&8217;s career include the monumental project Changing<br>New York (1935&8211;1938), photographing rural America including US Route 1 from Maine to Florida, photographically<br>interpreting scientific and natural phenomena, establishing the reputation of Eugène Atget, and founding the first<br>university photography program in the United States. Steidl published the two-volume retrospective Berenice Abbott<br>(2008), and Documenting Science (2011).
