Aperture Foundation presents the unprecedented exhibition Paul Strand in Mexico, a unique and important photographic “portrait” of Mexico at a critical point in its history, as seen through the eyes of a supremely gifted master of photography. This exhibition is comprised of over a hundred photographic works, including vintage prints; previously unseen documents related to Strand’s work in Mexico during both his 1932–34 trip to Mexico and a second journey in 1966; first editions of Photographs of Mexico and its 1967 reissue, The Mexican Portfolio; a presentation of Strand’s classic film Redes (1936); and set photographs by Ned Scott during its filming in Veracruz.
