About the Author

Alan Strassman
astrassman Massachusetts

Alan Strassman took his first photographs with a Brownie Hawkeye in 1949. An avid amateur for most of the six decades since, it is only in the past few years that he has begun to exhibit and sell his work. He has studied art history, drawing, sculpture, ceramics and photography at Princeton, Westchester Art Workshop, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston [SMFA] and the Maine Media Workshops. His work, owned in numerous private collections, has been exhibited at the SMFA, the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University and the Mercury Gallery (Boston and Rockport).

Strassman's work stands out in sharp relief against the background of conceptual work dominating gallery walls today. A neo-modern photographer in the truest sense, he aligns himself with early 20th century departures from Pictorialism - sharp, unmanipulated, unromanticized images of the real world - and applies his aesthetic in the 21st century, rejecting the self-absorption of conceptual post-modern art.
