Paul Strand’s New York comes to London
by | 19 March 16
The seminal American photographer Paul Strand (1890-1976) will have his first UK retrospective in more than 30 years at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Paul Strand: Photography and Film for the 20th Century (19 March-3 July) includes more than 200 photographs, sketches, vintage cameras and three of the artist’s films. The show features nine recent museum acquisitions from the only project that Strand is known to have undertaken in the UK, a 1954 study of the island of South Uist in the Hebrides, Scotland. Strand’s film Manhatta (1920-21), which has made in collaboration with the painter Charles Sheeler, will also be shown for the first time in the UK. The show is supported by the American Friends of the V&A.
