Description - Strand, Paul by Basil Davidson

Paul Strand was much more than a maker of images. Through his writings, Strand was an early advocate for photography as a fine art. He proved an innovative film-maker, a political activist deeply committed to social causes, and a pioneer in the development of photography books that combined word and image. An international team of twenty scholars - many of whom were associated with Strand - was commissioned to write about his life and work in honour of his 100th birthday. The essays range from Strand's debut in "Camerawork", to his first book-length publication with Nancy Newhall, "Time in New England"; from the break with his mentor, Alfred Steiglitz, to his maturing vision and last twenty-five years or work and life in Europe and Africa. The book's contributors include Basil Davidson, Naomi Rosenblum, Milton Brown, Ben Maddow, Richard Benson, Estelle Jussim, Belinda Rathbone, Edmund Desnoes, Pedro Meyer, Willian Alexander, and Anne Tucker.
