|Seventh Avenue | Berenice Abbott|
Berenice Abbott's great portrait of fast changing NYC (in The Week)
Moving Freely, and Photographing in Marseille
Joan Liftin's street photography (in The NY Times)
These are two terrific photographers of the urban scene who are polar opposites in terms of technique. Abbott's expansive, minutely detailed views of The City were made with a large format camera, often from precarious heights. Liftin works fast and close to capture movement and emotion with the nimbleness of a modern dancer.
