Considered by Alfred Stieglitz to have ushered photography away from the romantic tentacles of pictorialism into a new age and vocabulary, Paul Strand’s contribution to the medium is difficult to overestimate. Strand’s work is an example of the “straight” photographic technique. He photographed subjects such as street portraits, city scenes, machine forms, and plants, with a distinctive clarity, precision, and attention to geometric forms. This photogravure was included in the special double issue of Camera Work, issue 49/50 - the final edition of the renowned publication.

The full sheet size is 11 ¾ x 8 inches.

Please note: this work is unframed.
