About this Item

Full bound in publisher's blue buckram with title in gold on the front cover and the spine; light shelfwear to the extremities; offsetting at the endpapers else contents clean and binding sound. Abbott was a promoter of Eugene Atget and a friend of Walker Evans. Both influences can be found in the monograph. "Changing New York is clearly inspired by Abbott's understanding of Atget. Her theme is one firmly in the Atget mould -- the constant regeneration and renewal of the modern city, the old squeezed out by the new, the small trader squeezed out by the big business. She demonstrates that she has absorbed the iconography of Atget and Evans, the shopfronts and signs, the street traders and furniture, the contrast between ancient and modern. " An important piece of documentary photography that captures 1930s New York but does so in a deeply personal and artistic way. Parr & Badger. Bookseller Inventory # 3073
