A teaser from a longer piece – nonetheless an interesting few minutes of photography history…
‘Eugéne & Berenice – Pioneers of Urban Photography’ from SWiM Cinema on Vimeo.
Just saw a recent exhibit of Berenice Abbott’s work at the Heckscher Museum out here on Long Island. Also have paged thru some of her books. Fabulous archive – and images with tremendous depth both historically and visually.
I’m not familiar with Atget – but will look further.
Thanks for posting – and for the lead… :)
