TIME IN NEW ENGLAND
Photographs by Paul Strand
Text Selected and Edited by Nancy Newhall
Preface by Paul Metcalf
Afterword by Beaumont Newhall
Time in New England is the classic volume of Paul Strand's photographs, which vividly capture the
New England spirit, its people, and its countryside. His stirring images of forests, grass, rocks, and churches are complemented by famous and not-so famous historical and contemporary letters, poems, and journals from the great writers of America's past. Strand found in natural forms a wealth of material previously ignored—a limitless source of inspiration. His photographs combine the essentials of poetry with a deep feeling for the fundamental qualities of his subject matter.
The book reflects the history of New England from the dreams of the Pilgrims and Puritans on the high seas and their experiences in trying to build an ideal state to an affirmation of the New England spirit today. It is narrated by those who helped shape the region's destiny and by those who interpreted it.
Words and pictures alternate in an almost musical progression, with intricate harmonies that evoke the essential currents of the New England experience. Paul Strand's photographs, with their grave and four-square revelations, illuminate, and are illuminated by Nancy Newhall's brilliant selection of poems, letters, memoirs, sermons, tall tales, and confessions that range from Jonathan Edwards and Anne Bradstreet to Herman Melville and Robert Frost.
The result is unique: a panorama that is resolutely intimate, decisive, and convincing. Originally published in 1950, Time in New England has been redesigned to present a clearer and more vibrant interplay of word and image; and Strand's photographs for the first time bear comparison with the original prints. There has never been a testament quite like Time in New England, and it is now made available in a form worthy of its singular place in the history of publishing.
