Item description for Paul Strand Southwest by Paul Strand, Rebecca Busselle & Trudy Wilner Stack...

For Paul Strand, the great pioneer of modernism, the summers of 1926 and 1930-1932 were a return to experimentation and periods of great artistic growth. He worked in makeshift darkrooms-one in a hotel basement and another above the Taos movie theater. The Southwest period brought not only artistic renewal, but also personal turmoil. His political and social ideas were shifting, and his relationship with the two most important people in his life-his wife Rebecca and his mentor Alfred Stieglitz-were disintegrating. This book reconstructs, in an intimate, visual way, the emotional and creative swirl around Paul Strand, through beautiful reproductions of his images from the period and a comprehensive collection of notes, illustrations, and ephemera.

While a handful of Strand's Southwest photographs have been previously published, this period of his outstanding career remains largely unexplored. Paul Strand Southwest presents many images for the first time, including dramatic landscapes, decayed ghost towns, the noble architecture of adobe churches, and his final, austere portraits of Rebecca.

Reviews - What do customers think about Paul Strand Southwest?

Disappointing   Feb 7, 2005
The reproduction of Strand's New Mexico photographs is as poor as the old photo books of the 1950s. About half the book is images and the other half is largely excerpts of letters to and from Strand during this sad period of his life. Strand's compositions are, as always, perfect; but I don't think that his heart was in it. Mostly landscapes, views of the Taos church, and portraits of his soon-to-be-ex wife Rebecca, they compare poorly with the Southwest work of St. Ansel and Steiglitz's photos of Georgia O'Keefe. As a Strand fan, I am very disappointed.
