Catalogue Note

an iconic image of joyce. Berenice Abbott (1898-1991) was an American photographer who spent her formative artistic years in Paris (1921-29), learning photography from Man Ray, for whom she worked as darkroom assistant, and becoming one of the most fashionable photographers within the Parisian avant-garde. "To be 'done' by Man Ray or Berenice Abbott meant you rated as somebody," remarked Sylvia Beach (quoted in Bonnie Yochelson's introduction to Berenice Abbott's Changing New York 1935-39). Other noted sitters of Abbott's in the 1920's included Jean Cocteau, Jules Romain, and Peggy Guggenheim.
