Strand under the dark cloth ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Susan Sontag called Paul Strand 'the biggest, widest, most commanding talent in the history of American photography'. Strand created the direct, dynamic style of modern photography, and was one of the first American artists to fully understand cubism, translating its vocabulary to the medium of photography. In 1914-15, while his abstract compositions were startling the artistic world, he was also breaking new ground with candid portraits and extreme close-ups of nature. In 1921 Strand made America's first avant-garde film, 'Manhatta', with painter Charles Sheeler, and 20 years later he collaborated with Leo Hurwitz on 'Native Land', a visually remarkable indictment of American civil rights abuses. The documentary contains interviews with Georgia O'Keefe, Milton Brown, Fred Zinnemann, Leo Hurwitz, Virginia Stevens, Hazel Strand, Cesare Zavattini, Blanche Brown and Walter Rosenblum
