Published to accompany an exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, from February 1998, this is a study of the achievements of the early career of the American photographer, Paul Strand (1890-1976). After studying photography in New York with the social reformer Lewis Hine, Strand began to absorb the ideas of the European avant-garde, and fellow-photographer and art entrepreneur Alfred Stieglitz heralded Strand’s pictures as the first images of an incisive modern vision. The photographs reproduced here are accompanied by text which traces the early development of Strand’s ideas and the complex cultural context of his experiments.
