Pioneering American photographer Paul Strand gets the recognition that he richly deserves in this new exhibition.
Strand was a modernist who wanted the camera to play a central role in the recasting of art as a social medium.
His work took him from the rural US to Europe and then Africa. Although he is best known for his early abstractions, his later work focused on portraits.
Strand was friends with Communists, though he never joined the Party himself. He wanted photographers to use their skill to humanise people all too often left out of the picture.
His cinematic work also features here, and a a number of discussions are timetabled through the exhibition.
