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

Stunningly beautiful -- and HUGE (and heavy). What more can I say? Beautiful reproductions and interesting text in a very oversized coffee table book. I love Paul Strand's black and white photos -- and I think you can see how he and Tina Modotti really had a great relationship in terms of their photos. A tremendously great gift for a fan of black and white photography, or Mexico mid-20th century. Very moving images!

beautifully produced not only with the great photos --hitherto available only in expensive portfolios--- that Strand took but with documents of the period, posters, etc. Nice to have the Redes DVD with subtitles. Previously only Spanish language ones without titles have been available from Mexico.
A marvelous book.

Excellent insight into an iconic photographer. This is a real opportunity to experience all the aspects of Strand's photography.
If you think you have appreciated all of his work revel in further aspects of his genius.
