Lot Details

Printed in 1980's; mounted.

"I took this early in the evening: there was only one time of the year to take it, shortly before Christmas. I started about 4:30 p.m and didn't have much time. But I had done a good deal of prior planning on the photograph, going so far as to device a special soft developer for the negative. This was a fifteen-minute exposure and I'm surprised the negative is as sharp as it is because these big buildings do sway a bit. I knew I had no opportunity to make multiple exposures because the light would start to go out shortly after 5.00 p.m. when the people began to go home and so it had to be correct on the first try. In this case I was at a window, not at the top of the building; there would have been too much wind outside. It was, of course, hard to get permission." -Berenice Abbott
