Toward a Deeper Understanding, Paul Strand at Work
I was at Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon the other day and found a wonderful little volume on Paul Strand. This jewel of a book is just about perfect as small books go. Great reproductions with superb printing; cloth bound with high quality paper; a wonderful cross section of work from Strand's life; and a very interesting introduction. Enough content to leave one satisfied without overburdening to reader with too many images. Small in scale so it is comfortable in one's hands. And a perfect example of how a small image can convey a large impression. It's actually a catalog of an exhibition at the Pace/McGill gallery. Only 72 pages, but a very satisfying collection of images including some of Strand best portraits, still life compositions, and landscapes. It's certainly not comprehensive of his career, but a very nice slice of it.
