Kommentar

"I wanted to combine science and photography in a sensible, unemotional way. Some people’s ideas of scientific photography is just arty design, something pretty. That was not the idea. The idea was to interpret science sensibly, with good proportion, good balance and good lighting, so we could understand it."

"You scientists are the worst photographers in the world and you need the best photographers in the world and I'm the one to do it."

Berenice Abbott
