Paul Strand in Mexico




Paul Strand in Mexico tells the story of the photographer’s travels through Mexico during the 1930s. This work is the fruit of a key period of intense productivity and illustrates Strand’s deepening involvement in Mexican art, society and revolutionary politics. A scholarly analysis by James Krippner sheds light on this little-known chapter of Strand's life, bringing together primary sources from archives in both Mexico and the United States. Alfonso Morales, the current chief editor of Luna Córnea, contributes an essay that puts this remarkable body of work into context amongst Mexican photography and film during the 1930s.
