Paul Strand

Paul Strand: Southwest
by Paul Strand
Publisher's Description
Paul Strand spent several summers in the Southwest, most notably in the Santa Fe and Taos area of New Mexico. Freed from the familiarity of the East Coast, he was able to mirror his outward travels inwardly, embarking on a journey of experimentation. What that process yielded was an austere, elegant group of images, boldly seen and printed. This handsome hardbound catalogue, which accompanies a travelling exhibition, presents a few well-known pieces-Ranchos de Taos Church and City Hall among them-but its strength lies in revealing the hitherto unknown depth of his engagement with the area. Land-scapes, adobe churches, abandoned ghost towns, and a few portraits of his wife Rebecca make up the bulk of the work. The two authors have also made a significant contribution to Strand scholarship-personal correspondence and snapshots are included, and the bigger picture of his life and relationships is thoroughly explored.
