Paul Strand: Master of Modern Photography

Photographer Paul Strand (1890-1976), like his contemporaries Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Weston, helped establish modern photography in the 20th century. To help celebrate its recent acquisition of Strand’s prints from the Paul Strand Archive, the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s is presenting a major retrospective of his work, and Yale University Press have released Paul Strand: Master of Modern Photography, a book featuring a collection of more than 300 images. “Emphasizing the influential artist’s most important projects from the 1910s through the 1960s, the exhibition surveys Strand’s entire life’s work, including his breakthrough trials in abstraction and candid street portraits, close-ups of natural and machine forms, and extended explorations of the American Southwest, Mexico, New England, France, Italy, Scotland, Egypt, Morocco, Ghana, and Romania,” the museum said in a statement about the exhibition.

Paul Strand: Master of Modern Photography” runs through January 4, 2015 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and a book by the same name is available through the publisher’s website.
