Editorial Reviews

Review

"Strand approached his subjects with a reverence that can be cloying, but the work's formal restraint has real power, especially in the many portraits of working-class men, women, an children." --The New Yorker, 20-September-2010

"Shooting subjects without their explicit consent is a constant and fraught topic of debate in the realm of photography, yet Strand's images don't seem exploitative, if anything they seem somewhat boringly or stereotypically ennobling- with the native people's stony faced vacant stares penetrating some unseen sun-bleached horizon." --ARTINFO.com, Emma Allen, 9-September-2010

"Mr. Strand was reading Marx at this time, and considered his work `a criticism of capitalism a system I detest,' so all the portraits are of peasants and tend to valorize them. Mr. Strand made the most of his considerable technical skills." --The Wall Street Journal, William Meyers, 9-October-2010

"[Strand's] images are all about the Mexican Cultural Revolution, the nobility-of-the-common-man kind of thing and are concerned with stark landscapes, heavy-onto-death religious iconography and somber campesinos who could just as well hail from the 19th century. Strand believed in what he called `collective portraits' that would define and chronicle a country, portraits of a people who were trying to overcome `colonial bondage' while `retaining their innate power, militant patience and earthly dignity." ---The Miami Herald, Tom Austin, 6-June-2010

The book is beautiful and the historical information on Strand is really fascinating. I recommend this book to people interested in photography and Mexican history during this period.

Paul Strand images capture are delightful. If you are a photographer or just like to look and collect great images this a great book to get. The book is not just nice to look at, but it inspires one to look for those images in everyday life, to stop and pause and take a second look.
