Tempo of the City by Berenice Abbott

Also let’s not forget the symbolic contradictions of her photographs. For example, in the photograph ‘Tempo of the City’, the symbolism of time as a ruler of people is clear. She achieves this by placing the clock on her frame, in front of and over people, making them seem so ignorant and immodest in the sway of time.
