Valedictory for a Great Artist 31 May 2005
By Grady Harp - Published on
Format: Paperback
PAUL STRAND: SIXTY YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHS is an immensely successful book. Not only is it a true pleasure to renew acquaintance with the famous images of Paul Strand, it is the knowledge that Strand himself selected the images to be included in this book just before his death in 1976. Calvin Tomkins provides a sensitive and insightful history and eulogy and elected to include documents of Strand's correspondence and various writings to round out this memento mori.

But words are words and cannot begin to explain the simple, haunting beauty of the photographic images of Paul Strand. Whether the viewer's preference is for the portraits of mesmerizing faces captured in the direct simplicity of an encounter on the street or for the light sculpted landscapes or the still life images that are rich in metaphor, this collection of Strand's work is simply impeccable. The only appropriate words this reviewer can summon would be those encouraging lovers of fine art to buy this collection. It is Strand's own valedictory to an immeasurably important career. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, May 05

All I can say is Wow! 2 Nov 2011
By David W. Schumacher - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My mentor recommended this book to me. I have seen some Paul Strand work and knew I wanted to see more. This book arrived and what a wonderful collection. To make it even better, the quality of the image printing is like having an original silver-gelatin print in my hand. It is masterfully done. And the quality of Strand's work certainly deserved this kind of high quality printing. Best surprise was that I got a brand new First Edition (marked) from Amazon.

My feeling about Strand's work is that he explored abstractions as a photographer decades before the likes of Wynn Bullock, Edward Weston, Brett Weston and others. Unbelievable work.

Very comprehensive look at Paul Strand 9 Dec 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this book to prepare for a presentation on Paul Strand. I found it to be comprehensive and entertaining. I found the profile of Strand by Calvin Tompkins to be quite engaging and full of detail not found elsewhere. It also includes a nice selection of Strand's photography over the many decades he worked. His work is inspirational--I recommend this book to aspiring photographers.

This book contains a wonderful collection of images printed with care If you're a fan of Strand or photography as a whole, you should pick up a copy. I bought mine used, but it arrived in mint condition, still in the plastic..
