PAUL STRAND CIRCA 1916

(New York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Harry N Abrams, Inc., 1998).

FIRST EDITION. Describing Strand’s oeuvre, Stieglitz said: “In the history of photography there are but few photographers who, from the point of view of expression, have really done much work of any importance. And by importance we mean work that has some relatively lasting quality, that element which gives all art its real significance. . . . The work is brutally direct. Devoid of any flim-flams; devoid of trickery and any ‘ism,’ devoid of any attempt to mystify an ignorant public.”. Item #28777
