Lot Essay

In an attempt to reproduce the structure of soap bubbles, Berenice Abbott took at least three days and several exposures, setting off a flash underneath a glass pan which held the suds. The finished product was reproduced in Science Illustrated, long before Abbott participated in the Physical Science Study Committee project.
