Paul Strand

Ned Scott and Paul Strand were both members of the Camera Club of New York in the early 1930's.  They shared the friendship of another Camera Club member, Henwar Rodakiezicz.  All three worked on the Mexican Film Redes which was produced in 1934 and released in 1936.  Strand's main conridution to this film was the cinematography.  Henwar was the keep-it-together guy who wrote the shooting script, directed on special projects, helped edit and in general kept everyone in a good mood, including Strand.  Ned Scott made the movie stills.  Following the film's production, Strand said of Ned Scott stills that they were "the finest set of film stills I have ever seen of any film."
