Paul Strand, circa 1916 by Maria Morris Hambourg( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Strand (1890-1976) was one of the most important and influential photographers of this century. The dramatic achievements of his early career, which have not until now been studied apart from his entire oeuvre, are the focus of this book, which accompanies an exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Spurred by the example of Cezanne, Picasso, and Nietzsche, Strand pushed the medium into artistic terrain considered too difficult, cerebral, or brutal to describe with a camera
Avant-garde : experimental cinema of the 1920s and '30s by Bret Wood( Visual )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally produced as individual silent motion pictures in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States, these twenty-five short films epitomize the avant garde movement of the 1920's and 1930's. The films are drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, one of the nation's foremost proponents of experimental cinema, founder of the Hollywood Film Society, and longtime programmer at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles. Rohauer helped preserve and promote avant-garde cinema, and these films from his personal archive are some of the most influential and eclectic short films made during the 20th Century

Images of narrow alleys, old tobacco shops, sidewalk cafes, and open fields convey the textures and rhythms of the French countryside

Un paese : portrait of an Italian village by Cesare Zavattini( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and German and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1953 the renowned American photographer Paul Strand, who was then living in France, suggested to Italian screenwriter Cesare Zavattini that they do a book together about a small town in Italy, a town that would reveal the spirit of a people. Strand asked Zavattini to choose a village with the elusive "special quality" he sought. Zavattini knew just such a village: his own birthplace of Luzzara, in the Po Valley. The collaboration of these two remarkable artists resulted in the classic book Un Paese. Published in Italian in 1955, and now available for the first time in the English language, Un Paese captures in photographs and in spoken testimony the essential experience of daily life in Luzzara. It presents a series of intense portraits, graceful landscapes, and images of everyday objects. Paul Strand's photographs are carefully distilled, deeply powerful; they contain the flavors and the rhythms of an entire culture crystallized in a single village. Zavattini successfully synthesizes text and image, aligning with the new cinematic trend of the day, a movement known as Italian neorealism. Their Luzzara is an ordinary village, neither overly picturesque nor greatly unusual, yet it is a town sustained by a grounded humanity and a profound love for the land by its people

Manhatta : a study of the modern Babylon-on-the-Hudson [new music by Donald Sosin]( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1920, photographer Paul Strand and painter-photographer Charles Sheeler, who had acquired a French 35mm Debrie movie camera, collaborated on a short non-commercial art film, no titled Manhatta. They began to shoot in lower Manhattan, working without scenario or script. Many of the scenes were made from the upper floors of skyscrapers in order to emphasize the geometric character of the city's architecture and to suggest the ant-like character of its population. In their press release, Strand wrote that they had tried to "register directly the living forms in front of them and reduce [them] through rigid selection ... to their most intensest [sic] terms of expressiveness ... " to capture the "elusive spirit" of New York, without resorting to "artifice or photographic trickery". 2K restoration from 35 mm 1.33:1 black & white silent 16 fps; new music by Donald Sosin
