We are delighted to be working with the V&A to offer one lucky winner a pair of tickets to this major retrospective presenting the work of American photographer and film maker, Paul Strand (1890-1976).
The exhibition is the first in the UK since the artist’s death. Strand was one of the greatest photographers of the 20th-century whose images have defined the way fine art and documentary photography are understood and practiced today.
Following a trip to the opening of the exhibition, we have created an 'Inspired by Strand' collection, including work from Artfinder photographers around the world.

The exhibition displays around 200 objects spanning Strand’s entire career, including his breakthrough trials in abstraction and candid street portraits, close-ups of natural and machine forms, and extended explorations of countries from the American Southwest to France, Italy, Scotland, Ghana and beyond. A significant number of additional vintage prints from the V&A’s own collection are on display.
