Paul Strand (1890-1976) began photographing in his native New York City while he was a student at the Ethical Cultural High School. His devotion to photography was formed during his association with Alfred Stieglitz and the artist who exhibited the landmark '219' gallery. In 1945, the Museum of Modern Art devoted its first one-man photography exhibit to Strand's work. One of the first photographers to reach a wide audience through books rather than through exhibits alone, Strand produced a series of innovative books, in which he achieved new levels of reproduction quality through his close association with printers. Beginning in 1947 with Time in New England Strand published five more titles; three of these have been reissued by Aperture.
"Paul Strand is one of those photographers who have established not
just a body of work but a way of seeing. His prints encourage the
eye to take an apparently endless journey."--"The Times Literary
