A photographer who travelled the world
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
and Film for the 20th Century runs at London’s V&A Museum until July 3. For more information visit www.vam.ac.uk.
