"Walker Evans - America is a dramatic collection of Evans's photographic output from 1927-1948. His uncompromising objectivity and unflagging pursuit of hidden aspects of American life found unique expression in innovative framing and composition. This is a body of work many critics believe to be the height of social documentary photography." - the publisher
Some minor yellowing around edges of dust jacket and pages; slight splaying of boards; otherwise a beautiful Fine copy.
