July 17 is the birthday of Berenice Abbott, American photographer best known for her black-and-white photography of New York City architecture and urban design of the 1930s. She was part of the straight photography movement, which stressed the importance of not manipulating photographs in either the subject matter or the developing processes. Pictured is one of her most famous photographs, “Nightview, New York” (1932).
