Emigrating to Paris in 1950, American photographer Paul Strand (1890-1976) traveled widely with his wife Hazel Kingsbury across France, Italy, Romania and the Hebrides in search of an ideal village embodying an unbroken exchange between people, environment and nature. They also made photographic odysseys to Morocco, Ghana and Egypt. The 113 quietly moving photographs in this magical album capture the particularities of each region yet also speak of the common humanity of the people emphatically portrayed. Duncan, a Paris-based writer/artist who befriended the Strands in France, provides an informal reminiscence. Eskildsen, a German museum director, capably charts Strand's quest for a whole, organic lifestyle and its expression in his peripatetic work, which has received much less critical attention than his early pioneering pictures.

Review 
  
"Of all the great photographers of the twentieth century, Paul Strand most truly embodied the aspirations and spirit of his age. From 1915 to 1975 he created photographs that continue to deepen in value and intensity...They show us that abstract qualities are implanted there by culture. Justice and desire burn in faces, foliage, and even a fence. As in all great art, the photographs of Paul Strand transcend their own immediacy, a feat of eloquence that makes their presence enduring." --Mark... read more  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
"So finally, it can be seen that what I have explored all my life is the world on my doorstep...The artist's world is limitless. It can be found everywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away." --Paul Strand 
  
 
  
From 1950 to 1976 Paul Strand and his wife Hazel traveled throughout Italy, France, the Outer Hebrides, Egypt, Morocco, Ghana, and Romania, creating work that changed the way we look at photographs. Paul Strand: The World on My Doorstep honors this important photographer by collecting the finest images from his later years. Catherine Duncan-writer, artist, close family friend-provides an intimate biographical memoir that explores Strand's creative life and methods. Ute Eskildsen, photographic curator of the Museum Folkwang, in Essen, Germany, contributes an essay on Strand's portraits and landscapes. The sum is a penetrating, human portrait of Paul Strand at the height of his photographic power.
