Berenice Abbott

Manhattan Skyline: I. South Street and Jones Lane, Manhattan. March 26, 1936.

I love Berenice Abbott’s photographs of New York in the 1930s which capture the city in transition from a world of 19th century brownstones to the more familiar high-rise skyline. Dover Publications produced their own collection of her photos which I used as one of my key references when drawing Reverbstorm. The NYPL Digital Gallery has a huge selection online, including many which didn’t make the Dover book.
