If I were into photography, I would know who Paul Strand was. But, I’m not, and I didn’t, not until now. It took a Groupon for reduced admission at the Philadelphia Museum of Art for me to discover that there was such a man as Paul Strand, and that for several months in the early 1960s he spent time in Ghana taking portraits of it’s peoples on the crossroads of modernity.
Paul Strand: Master of Modern Photography runs only in Philadelphia in the US until Jan 4th 2015 at which point it goes to Europe. Aren’t I lucky to have been able to catch it?!
