PAUL STRAND AT LONDON Victori and Albert MUSEUM

Posted on

Presented last March at the V&A Museum in London, the first retrospective of the American photographer and director Paul Strand will be on display until July 3rd. The artist, whose works have long influenced the world of documentary art and photography, is considered one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. The exhibition is the first to be showcased in England since his departure and hosts nearly 200 works of Strand’s career: from his photography to portraits captured on streets, from natural subjects’ close-ups to landscapes photographed during his journeys towards Mexico, England, France, Italy, Scotland, Egypt, Morocco, Ghana and Romania. The artist’s masterpieces are blended into vintage photographs which were supplied by the V&A to lend an extra touch to the collection. The exhibition is organised and supported by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, in collaboration with Fundación Mapfre and Terra Foundation for American Art.
