Abbott was a photographer born in Ohio and
raised there by her mother following her parents divorce. In 1918
she moved to New York City to become a sculptor. Abbott befriended
a Greenwich Village crowd including Djuna Barnes, Man Ray and
Marcel Duchamp. In 1921 she moved to Paris and lived there until
1929, save for a brief stay in Berlin. Abbott worked at several
jobs, often as an artist's model. Near poverty, Ray hired her as
his assistant in 1923 where she learned photography and in 1926
opened her own studio. As a photographer she promoted her own work
and was credited with rediscovering and popularizing the works of
Abbott was acquainted with many lesbians who had
emigrated to Paris as well as their friends and photographed many
of them. Abbott shot her subjects in relaxed, natural poses and
created some of the most memorable photographs from that era. Her
male peers considered her a renegade. Abbott's subjects included
Barnes, Sylvia Beach, Jean Cocteau, André Gide, James Joyce,
Marie Laurencin, Claude McKay and Barnes' lover, Thelma Wood.
When she returned to New York, Abbott
taught and compiled two photo documentaries, "Changing New
York" and "Route 1." In 1958 she began a series of
science photographs which reestablished her reputation as a
leading photographer. Abbott's later years were spent living and
working in Maine.
Abbott is considered one of the 20th century's greatest photographers. Her New
York City images, especially the Changing New York project of
1935-39, have come to define Depression-era New York.
