Hardcover. Condition: new. Hardcover. Tir a'Mhurain is a collection of photographs that reflects the impressions gathered by Paul Strand and his wife Hazel during their 3-month visit to the Hebrides in 1945. Juxtaposing people and landscape, Strand's beautifully sequenced photographs depict the perfect complicity he saw between nature and habitation in their wild terrain. Whether it is a view of the rocks and the sea or a grinning shepherd boy; scuddling clouds hanging over seaside house or the wrinkled face of an old lady framed by a knitted shawl, Strand's images transcend the ephemeral. This extended portrait captures the essence and complexity of a singular place. This is a true masterpiece of photography. Classic book of black-and-white photographs in the Outer Hebrides. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.

Condition: Ottimo (Fine). 105 photographs by Paul Strand. Text by Basil Davidson Printed in Germany, Leipzig, VEB Interdruck. 8vo. pp. 150. . Ottimo (Fine). . Prima ed. americana (First American edition). . ''La vera unicità del mezzo fotografico [consiste nella sua] assoluta e incondizionata oggettività''. A tale affermazione, divenuta il manifesto della fotografia modernista, il fotografo Paul Strand rimase sempre fedele, soprattutto nella produzione di libri che illustravano popoli e Paesi, cui si dedicò dopo la seconda guerra mondiale. Uno dei più memorabili è ''Tir a' Mhurain: Outer Hebrides'', nome gaelico per l'isola di South Uist ovvero the Land of Bent Grass. Il volume, le cui bellissime fotografie in bianco e nero furono scattate nell'isola che dà il titolo al libro, oltre che a Benbecula ed Eriskay, ha un risvolto politico. Strand, fotografo marxista controllato dall'FBI, sbarcò sull'isola proprio mentre si andavano conducendo sondaggi segreti per l'utilizzo del luogo come base missilistica americana. Strand, indignato, concepì in parte Tir a' Mhurain come protesta contro il militarismo aggressivo statunitense. Il fotografo inoltre insistette per stampare il libro a Leipzig, Germania dell'Est, adducendo motivi tecnici più che politici, ovvero l'esistenza di uno speciale processo di stampa disponibile unicamente dall'altra parte della cortina di ferro. Il libro venne bandito negli USA a meno che le copie importate recassero il timbro ''stampato in Germania, occupata dall'URSS''. Clausola che Strand ovviamente non avrebbe mai accettato. Rilegato tela, sovracoperta (cloth, dust jacket). Book.
