Abbott's career spanned almost sixty years. She was an assistant to Man Ray in Paris in the 1920s, and an early advocate of the work of Atget. Her strikingly straightforward and sympathetic portraits of Joyce and the Paris circle of writers and artists, and her document of New York City in the thirties, ensured her place among the best of American photographers of the twentieth century.
