Photographer Berenice Abbott

“Does not the very word ‘creative’ mean to build, to initiate, to give out, to act – rather than to be acted upon, to be subjective? Living photography is positive in its approach, it sings a song of life – not death.”

-Berenice Abbott

Sometimes, I don’t feel like I really understand photography. In 2020, its everywhere you look. Every feed at my desk and in my pocket is full of high definition pictures, static and moving. I don’t think of myself a photographer and yet I snap at least a few every day. With so many photo ops, It feels like a good picture is simply a matter of happenstance, you know, finger on the button at the right place at the right time. I feel kind of jaded about it… and then someone comes along and knocks me on my ass.

Berenice Abbott is one of those photographers.
