Photographs by Walker Evans.
232 pp., 95 black & white and 13 color illustrations, 10x12¼".
Drawing from the Walker Evans Archive of photographs, papers, negatives and
collections, this exhibition catalogue truly celebrates the output of this important and
influential photographer. Spanning Evans’ output from the late 1920s to the beginning of
the 1970s the 105 exceptional prints reproduced here, presented one to a page, provide
a unique opportunity to better understand a remarkable legacy. Included are later period
colour Polaroids, dramatic studies of Havana, searing portraits of New York City subway
riders made with a hidden camera, rare prints from Evans’ 20 years of work at Fortune
magazine and his astonishing mid-1930s series documenting the American South. The
exhibition was conceived with the help of Jeff L. Rosenheim, curator of Photography at
the Metropolitan Museum of Art, while the publication includes an original and
extensively researched essay by Jordan Bear.
