#12 Homage to Abbott


Only after having made hundreds of (final) exposures in a dozen trips to the scene over eighteen months did a another purpose of the portfolio emerge in my mind, catalyzed by seeing again an image of New York by Berenice Abbott, "New York at Night," c. 1933. (  http://www.afterimagegallery.com/abbottnightview.htm ) In light of this and other works by her than I have long admired, I have come to see my portfolio as a re-take on New York City.
