Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: T&HFL12 After a lifetime of working on a series of collective portraits in far-flung places such as Mexico; Ghana; Italy; Tir aMhurain, Scotland; and his adoptive country, France, an aging Paul Strand decided to concentrate on still lifes and the stony beauty of his own garden at Orgeval, France, as a site in which to distill his discoveries as a photographer. The work that constitutes The Garden at Orgeval is marked by close and careful study of the forms and patterns within natureof tiny buttonshaped flowers, cascading winter branches, and fierce snarls of twigs. While the images bear the same directness and precise vision that is quintessentially Strand, the work also reflects a growing metaphorical turn. Renowned photographer Joel Meyerowitzwhose own affinity toward Strands Orgeval series stems from a lifetime of photographing in different genres and ultimately returning to nature as an enduring subjectwill select the photographs in the book, and respond to them in an accompanying personal essay, reflecting on issues, including the contemplation of ones garden and growing old. Beautifully produced in a modest size, in the manner of a volume of poems, this books task is to do credit to Strands final work, both as an individual and as a key figure in Modernist photography.

Synopsis: After nearly a lifetime of traveling and photographing in far-flung places such as Mexico, Ghana, Italy, Scotland and his adoptive country, France, Paul Strand began to concentrate on the stony beauty of his own garden at Orgeval. The work that constitutes "The Garden at Orgeval" offers a close, exacting study of nature's forms and patterns: tiny button-shaped flowers, cascading winter branches and snarls of twigs. While these photographs exhibit the same directness and precise vision that is so quintessentially Strand, they also reflect his increasing preoccupation with mortality and the fragility of existence.
The photographs in this volume have been selected by the renowned photographer, Joel Meyerowitz--whose own affinity toward the "Orgeval" series stems from a lifetime of photographing in different genres and ultimately, like Strand, returning to nature as an enduring subject. Meyerowitz also contributes an essay responding to Strand's images and reflecting on the contemplation of gardens and the process of aging.
Paul Strand (1890-1976) was one of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century, and among the first to establish photography as an art form. As a youth, he studied under Lewis Hine at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School, going on to win acclaim from the likes of Alfred Stieglitz and David Alfaro Siqueiros. After World War II, Strand traveled around the world--from New England to Ghana, France to the Outer Hebrides--and eventually settled in Orgeval, France, where he spent the remaining 27 years of his life.

About the Author: Paul Strand was one of the great photographers of the twentieth century.

After World War II, Strand traveled around the world―from New England to Ghana, France to the Outer Hebrides―to photograph, and in the process created a dynamic and significant body of work.
