Phillips Book Prize winner, Terri Weissman, snapped this photo while in Paris over the weekend. Weissman, a scholar on American photographer Berenice Abbott, was in the city of light to participate in a symposium in conjunction with the exhibition Berenice Abbott (1898-1991): Photographs at  Jeu de Paume. Weissman’s manuscript on the life and career of Berenice Abbott won the 2008 Phillips Book Prize and was published in partnership with the University of California Press as the second volume in a series of first books sponsored by The Phillips Collection Center for the Study of Modern Art.
