Paul Strand (1890–1976), an American modernist whose work established new aesthetic directions for the medium while remaining deeply engaged with the world he portrayed, is one of the major photographers of the twentieth century. The first major retrospective of the photographer’s oeuvre in Europe since his death, Paul Strand—Photography and Film for the 20th Century emphasizes the most important projects he undertook in every decade from the 1910s through the 1960s and reveals aspects of his practice in America, Europe, Africa and Latin America. Challenging the prevailing view that Strand’s later work remained relatively static over the course of several decades, this exhibition makes the case that Strand radically changed his work at several important junctures.
Organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Paul Strand—Photography and Film for the 20th Century travels to the Fundacion MAPFRE, in Madrid, later this year.
