Hank O’Neal was born in 1940 and, in addition to being a photographer, his career has included stints in the worlds of government, education, and record and concert production. In 1970 O’Neal took his first serious photographs and two years later met Berenice Abbott, with whom he worked closely for the next nineteen years. About the same time he met André Kertész, Walker Evans and all the other living Farm Security Administration photographers. O’Neal is co-editor of Berenice Abbott (2008) and the five-volume The Unknown Abbott (2013), and has published more than a dozen other books on various subjects, mostly related to photography, music or both.
