11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 699 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

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

11 editions published in 1997 in English and German and held by 302 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

Paul Robeson : citizen of the world( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in Undetermined and English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Proud Valley an African American sailor comes to a Welsh coal mining town in 1938 and helps re-open the mine at the cost of his life. Native Land, a political semi-documentary formed from staged reenactments, leads viewers on an emotional tour of the pre-World War II U.S. and its freedom-based ideologies and looks at the the forces it sees as threatening to undermine America's strengths from within: greedy capitalists, professional strikebreakers, and the Ku Klux Klan. Robeson on Pacifica Radio: Paul Robeson was denied his U.S. passport from 1950 to 1958 after he refused to sign an affidavit stating that he was not a Communist. During this time, Pacifica Radio interviewed Robeson, allowing him to express his personal history and view of the world. This interview was conducted by host Elsa Knight Thompson and Harold Winkler, president of the Pacifica Foundation

Tir a'mhurain : the Outer Hebrides of Scotland by Paul Strand( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of photographs that reflects the impressions gathered by Paul Strand and his wife Hazel during their 3-month visit to the Hebrides in 1945. Juxtaposing people and landscape, Strand's beautifully sequenced photographs depict the perfect complicity he saw between nature and habitation in their wild terrain. Whether it is a view of the rocks and the sea or a grinning shepherd boy; scuddling clouds hanging over seaside house or the wrinkled face of an old lady framed by a knitted shawl, Strand's images transcend the ephemeral. This extended portrait captures the essence and complexity of a singular place
