Tempo of the City: I. Fifth Avenue and 44th Street, Manhattan.
Select your print and framing options
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.
