The five volumes of “The Unknown” present hundreds of unseen and until now unpublished images by the photographer Berenice Abbott.
“New York—Early Work” contains rare images of New York after the Wall Street Crash of 1929 made by Abbott with a small hand-held camera as sketches for large format photographs. “The American Scene” showcases photographs from Abbott’s journeys through America in 1933, 1934 and 1935, hardly seen since that time. “Deep Woods” presents Abbott’s 1943 and 1967 images of the Red River Logging Company in California, her first such documentary project. “Greenwich Village” collects for the first time the pictures of Abbott’s neighbourhood in New York, her home when she left Ohio in 1918 and again in the mid-1930s. Finally, “U.S. 1, U.S.A.”, including Abbott’s first experimental work in colour, records her ambitious trip down the length of U.S. Route 1 in 1954.
