Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 089381993X, Hardcover)"Paul Strand is one of those photographers who have established not just a body of work but a way of seeing. His prints encourage the eye to take an apparently endless journey." --The Times Literary Supplement In 1954 Paul Strand and his wife Hazel spent three months traversing the rugged island of South Uist, off the west coast of Scotland. Tir a'Mhurain reflects the impressions they gathered during their stay. Juxtaposing people and landscape, Strand's photographs depict the perfect complicity he saw between nature and habitation in this wild terrain. Whether they are of rocks and sea or a grinning shepherd boy, scudding clouds hanging over seaside houses or the wrinkled face of an old lady, Strand's images capture the essence and complexity of a singular place. This new edition of Tir a'Mhurain, which includes rare images never before published, is a true masterpiece of photography. In the spirit of the Aperture editions of Strand's classic works La France de Profil (2001) and Un Paese (1997), this volume celebrates the beauty of everyday life.
