About This Image

Signed with negative and print date written in photographer's hand on print verso. Note - Steiner mis-wrote the date of the photograph here as 1935, but this image was made in 1936.

Strand shot, produced, and supervised this powerful blend of documentary and drama about a fishermen’s strike in Mexico, directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Fred Zinnemann (High Noon, From Here to Eternity) and Emilio Gómez Muriel.
