    I have to confess that I don't think I've ever been to the Aperture gallery on 23rd St. (or maybe I was once, but not any time recently) in Manhattan. I'm guessing they should have Strand prints. Info at www.aperture.org.

    Srand

    David and everyone else. It is more than likely that many Galleries in NYC have Strands. It is also most likely that they reside in boxes on a shelf. I would definately check the magazine Photograph. Alot of the galleries list the artists they carry. On the otherhand it is questionable if they will let you see them other than having a strong interest to buy them. Some of the Gallery owners are very cool. Others I'd rather not even talk about much less even go into. However a little diplomacy goes a long way.
    Just as aside: Just last year I saw an exhiblt of Paul Caponigro prints here in Ct. It was always a known fact that he is one of the great printers in Photography. I was abso;utely shocked to see that the prints; about 15-20 had been extremely overprinted and what seemed to me really dark. This was in a public library and it was a little dark in there but...... they WERE really dark and I've been curious ever since as to what was up with that. Since prints were for sale I'm wondering what the story was. I wouldn't have bought any. Yet I own CAponigro books where the prints just glow right in the book. Was this a scam to make money. Who knows? Work prints?
    Regards Peter

    David - thanks . . . I didn't know Aperture had a gallery in the city. Peter - last time in NY, on Madison around 55th, a guy let us look at all kinds of prints, including a Stieglitz "Hand of Man" which my sweetie REALLY wanted to buy . . . anyway, some gallery owners are indeed cool, and truly love their work and the medium. Upshot of all this: simply have to get my arse down to NYC soon and do the rounds of galleries and museums.
    P.S. met Caponigro at a show in California about 15 years ago. The prints there were just exquisite. And he's a really nice guy. Autographed a card for me to give to a girl I wanted to impress.

    Well, I can't say for certain, but the coming AIPAD show in February here in NYC should have some Strands you can hold in your hands. "The Photograpy Show' is at the New York Hilton on Feb. 10 through the 13th. Check with the representing galleries to assure yourself that some prints will be available.

    Don't know if you have to drive that far to see a Strand photo since Yale has a vary impressive photo collection. Call the Yale art museum, Chapel st. New Haven Ct. and ask.

    From the last page of the Spring 1994 issue of Aperture, Paul Strand: The World on My Doorstep:

    "For further information or to make an appointment to view the prints, please contact Aperture's Burden Gallery at (212) 505-5555 ext. 326 or the sales department at (212)505-5555 ext. 331."

    I'm trying to imagine the Guggenheim showing photographs. Likely they would be blank pieces of photographic paper, with some artsy title.

The last time I can recall a show of his work was one that toured the country more than ten years ago. Perhaps the curators of his photographs are concerned that any more exposure to UV will further degrade them. (The lighting in this show was very dim). For any not familiar with Strand's silver prints, they are, I believe, the most perfect jewels ever created on photographic paper. Particularly the work done in Gaspe, New England and the Southwest. To me, these prints are the absolute benchmark of what the medium can deliver. The latest book about Strand was of gravure prints, made from very early negatives. Of course, gravures can stand to be exposed more, and are not as "valuable" as the silver prints, some of which are one of a kind. Anyway, I live within a day's drive of NYC, where I guess one would have the best chance of getting a viewing.
    The nearest collection I can think of would be Harvard's Fogg Museum in Cambridge. Many years ago, I used to vist there frequently, and would always sit in a state of awe before the Strand holdings. Having seen several originals in several collections, I completely agree that these are the finest ever done. I knew Ansel Adams, and love all he has done for all of us. But he would probably be the first to agree that Strand was the greatest.

    Those were neither a scam, nor work prints, I assume. Paul has always chosen to make dark prints. I once questioned him about it, but never received an answer I was comfortable with.

    If you look at original prints by some of Paul's mentors, Minor White and Ansel Adams, I believe you would think them overprinted, as well.

    John Szarkowskli has noted that often, later in their careers, the great photographers tend to print darker and contrastier, with less delicacy. It's a surprising phenomenon.
