Strand's style of abstract forms and humanistic portraits would later pollinate the work of Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia OKeeffe, Edward Hopper, and Henri Cartier-Bresson. He shot social realist photos, which, in an era of McCarthyism, incited G-men to trail his every move. If he were alive today, his talk of the greater good and unity of all people would land him on the Tea Partys blacklist. Sounds like an endorsement to us. Paul Strand in Mexico also includes his film Redes and his letters with Stieglitz and OKeeffe.
