James B. Abbott

James B. Abbott (Philadelphia, PA) has lived and worked in Philadelphia since 1980. His photographic subjects have ranged from the Berlin Wall to the Ben Franklin Bridge, from urban city-scapes to the solitude and rich natural beauty of outer Cape Cod. Regardless of subject, what consistently remains is an intense eye for composition, attention to detail and skill in the dark room. All Abbotts' black and white prints are hand toned adding the unique richness.

Abbott received a BFA in photography from the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI and in 1984 completed his professional training by apprenticing with renowned American photographer Burk Uzzle. Abbott has received two Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Fellowship Awards and an SOS grant. Many important public and private collections contain Abbott’s work, including the Allentown Museum of Art, Cranbrook Museum of Art, the Federal Reserve Bank, Philadelphia and in 2006 the work juried into The Print Center’s 80th Annual International Competition: Photography was awarded the Philadelphia Museum of Art Purchase Prize.
