Berenice Abbott


“Let us first say what photography is not.

A photograph is not a painting, a poem, a symphony, a dance.

It is not just a pretty picture, not an exercise

in contortionist techniques and sheer print quality.

It is or should be a significant document, a penetrating statement,

which can be described in a very simple term: selectivity”.

Berenice Abbott from “Universal Photo Almanac”, 1951
