Time Out says

Photographer Berenice Abbott was among the first to understand New York City as a synonym for modern life. She took portraits of the many transformations the city underwent, as if it were a living thing, in the mid-20th century, a shining moment in time for architecture and the synthesis of modern society. This exhibition summons the atmosphere of New York from 1920 as well as Abbott's fascination with photographer Eugène Atget, whom she discovered via Man Ray and whose work she strongly supported and promoted. You can also admire science-related images and those of physical phenomena, which Abbott shot on behalf of MIT's Physical Science Study Committee project.
