Add Custom Frame


We find ourselves returning to Berenice Abbott’s Changing New York series again and again, not only because it’s an extensive collection of compelling photographs of our native habitat, but because the images are at once incredibly familiar and indicative of just how much this city has changed and will continue to. When Abbott composed this shot of 1930s Manhattan on Fifth Avenue and 44th, she gave the clock a starring role. It bisects the image, towering over the coat-clad passerbys bustling about below, its stately face almost godlike—an all-seeing eye. It’s a reminder of the never ending flow of time, despite the moments artists like Abbott froze on film.

+ Limited-edition, exclusive to 20x200
+ Museum quality: archival inks, 100% cotton rag paper unless noted

Our quoted dimensions are for the size of paper containing the images, not the printed image itself. We do not alter the aspect ratio, nor do we crop or resize the artists’ originals. All of our prints have a minimum border of .5 inches to allow for framing.
