photographer feature: Berenice Abbott

I’ve been aware of Berenice Abbott’s work for a while but it that way when you know an image when you see it but you don’t know who made it. After looking more deeply into her work I found some interesting aspects that I quite enjoy such as the photos taken of skyscrapers partly obscured by a balustrade.
