Berenice Abbott Photography and Science: An Essential Unity By: Diana Gaston Berenice Abbott’s photographs remind us just how much the belief in the veracity of the photograph has diminished.

She has done seminal work on social practices of photography and on the materiality of photographs, elucidating the nature of such images as historical evidence and the frailties evident in the institutional practices of photo archives and museums.

Through her publications, teaching, and research, she continues to give us creative new perspectives on the nature of photography and the way in which photography can be harnessed as cultural and historical memory.

In our second approach, we used an Ednra-specific antagonist to treat wild type pregnant mice between embryonic days E8.0 and E10.0, a time frame encompassing the early migration and proliferation of cranial NCCs.

Interestingly, middle ear structures are enlarged and malformed in a majority of embryos, instead resembling structures found in extinct predecessors of mammals.To elucidate the temporal necessity for Ednra signaling in vivo, we undertook two strategies.We first used a conditional knockout strategy in which mice containing a conditionally targeted expression occurs at different time periods within cranial NCCs.Somewhere in the last half-century it circled back on itself, referencing the act of picture-taking with its exaggeration and propensity for manipulation, invention, and storytelling.Abbott’s emphatic black-and-white photographs return us to the age when photography was valued as a form of evidence, documentation, and rapt description.
