Photographs by Walker Evans.
Pantheon, New York, 1989. 112 pp., 80 duotones, 8¼x11".
These photographs, taken just a few years before Evans was hired by Roy Stryker for the Farm Security Administration, were originally produced for Carleton Beals' The Crime of Cuba, and provide a powerful documentation of the full range of life in the vibrant and politically turbulent Havana of the 1930s. "All the hallmarks of Evans' mature style, its gritty directness, immediacy, and feeling for the common man, are strikingly in evidence here."--the publisher.
