“North and South: Berenice Abbott’s U.S. Route 1,” an exhibition of photos by Berenice Abbott, will be on view at the Wolfsonian–FIU, Miami from June 9 to October 8, 2017.
The exhibition will feature a selection of 50 works by Abbott, who in 1954, journeyed along the length of U.S. Route 1, capturing the road, its towns, and inhabitants.
This series presents a singular visual summary of American life during the mid-1950s. During the trip, Abbott shot more than four hundred 8×10-inch photographs, and over two thousand smaller images using her Rolleiflex camera, representing her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject.
The exhibition will be on view at The Wolfsonian–FIU, 1001 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, FL.
