"The decision as to when to photograph, the actual click of the shutter, is purely controlled from the outside, by the flow of life, but it also comes from the mind and the heart of the artist. The photograph is his vision of the world and expresses, however subtly, his values and conviction."--Paul Strand. For three months in 1954 Strand and his wife Hazel traversed the island of South Uist, off the west coast of Scotland. One of Paul Strand's classic masterpiece, beautifully printed in gravure.
