Berenice Abbott / Eugene Atget.

Photographs by Berenice Abbot and Eugene Atget. Text by Clark Worswick.
Arena Editions, Santa Fe, 2002. 144 pp., 102 duotone illustrations, 9¼x10½".

With numerous previously unpublished images, and a superb essay by historian Clark Worswick, this truly outstanding volume adds significantly to studies on the relationship between Berenice Abbott and Eugene Atget. What is universally known is that Abbott purchased Atget's estate in 1927 and spent 40 years popularizing Atget's vision of Paris. What is far less known however are the photographs she herself printed from Atget's original negatives--extremely vibrant photographs that form the core of this book. The essay by Abbott reproduced in the back originally appeared in1964 in The World of Atget, published by Horizon Press.
