Paul Strand was more than a great artist: he was a discoverer of the true potential of photography as the most dynamic medium of the twentieth century. Purity, elegance, and passion are the hallmarks of Strands imagery. And this inaugural volume of Apertures Masters of Photography series presents forty-one of Strands greatest photographs, drawn from a career that spanned six decades. <BR>Included are his earliest experimental efforts, created from 1915 to 1917, which Alfred Stieglitz declared had begun to redefine the medium. Subsequent photographs reveal the artists impeccable vision in locales as diverse as New England and the Outer Hebrides, France, and Ghana. During Strands last years, he concentrated on still lifes and the poignant beauty to be found in his own garden at Orgeval, France. <BR>In an introductory essay, Mark Haworth-Booth, Curator of Photography at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, provides an overview of the artists life and his enduring contribution.<BR
