Episode 57 of 240 episodes

Paul Strand was born in 1890. Growing up in New York, he began taking photography courses with Lewis Hine at the age of 17. His studies with Hine included a field trip to the famous art gallery, 291 located on 5th Avenue in New York and operated by Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen. As Strand became fascinated with the modernest photography, sculpture and paintings shown at 291 he became inspired and committed to his own work as a photographer. Strand went on to become one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. His wide range of subject choices and ability to recognize the power of the image to create social awareness catapulted him into the company of greats.
