Paul Strand: Southwest
January 27 – May 23, 2007
Paul Strand is a seminal figure in the history of photography. Strand first journeyed to the Southwest in 1926. In New Mexico, Strand created images that spoke to the harmony of land and sky that he then pursued for the rest of his career. This exhibition presents many images for the first time as they are drawn from the artist’s estate. They include dramatic landscapes, decayed ghost towns, the noble architecture of adobe churches, and his austere portraits of his wife, Rebecca.
The nationally traveling exhibition is organized by the Aperture Foundation. Local support is generously provided by The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.
