Paul Strand was a gifted Amer­i­can pho­tog­ra­pher and film­maker, who set the gold stan­dard for doc­u­men­tary work. Strand was also a peri­patetic pho­tog­ra­pher, work­ing in Italy, Ro­ma­nia, Morocco, Ghana, Egypt, Mex­ico, the US and else­where un­til his death in 1976. This ex­hi­bi­tion in Lon­don presents a ma­jor ret­ro­spec­tive of his work, with about 200 pieces on dis­play. In­cluded are ex­am­ples of his strik­ingly can­did street por­traits from Italy in the 1950s, along with his more ex­per­i­men­tal work in ab­strac­tion. Paul Strand: Pho­tog­ra­phy
