This contribution to the centennial celebration of the master American photographer/filmmaker Strand (1890-1976) is a tour de force. The 27 new essays by an impressive list of noted historians and writers, many of whom knew Strand, explore periods and photographs that have been less well studied as well as more familiar aspects of his life and art. As Alan Trachtenberg notes in his introduction, in treating the historical Strand--his politics, his relation to modernism, major phases in his 60 years in photography and film--the essays begin to restore "the figure to his cultural time and space," giving us a better sense of the person, allowing the living Strand "to be reclaimed from the classic legend." An important work for American art, photographic history, and American studies collections, it complements the current traveling exhibition mounted by the National Gallery and its accompanying publication Paul Strand ( LJ 1/91).
