Walker Evans (1903-1975) is, without doubt, one of the most influential American photographers ever, and many of his images have become fixed in the collective memory. But while Evans' uncompromising depiction of poverty during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the subject of a series commissioned by the Farm Security Administration, has become a key chapter in the history of photography, his equally innovative images from later decades have generally commanded less attention. This exciting new monograph attempts to redress the balance by examining Evans' complete body of work, and features many rarely seen photographs, including his final works, a sequence of Polaroids shot in the early 1970s (a sequence made possible by an unlimited supply of film from its manufacturer). Evans' re-ascendancy in the 1970s, and his close relationship with legendary Museum of Modern Art curator John Szarkowski, are also closely examined, in this essential and definitive volume on a great photographer who certainly achieved his aim to produce pictures that were "literate, authoritative, transcendent."Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Walker Evans (1903-1975) took up photography in 1928. His book collaboration with James Agee, "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men" (1941), which portrayed the lives of three white tenant families in southern Alabama during the Depression, has become one of that era's most defining documents. Evans joined the staff of "Time" magazine in 1945, and shortly after moved to "Fortune" magazine, where he stayed until 1965. That year, he became a professor of photography at the Yale University School of Art. Evans died at his home in Old Lyme, Connecticut, in 1975.

Walker Evans (1903 1975) is undisputedly one of the most influential American photographers ever. His work altered the consciousness of his country, and many of his images are fixed in collective American memory. His uncompromising documentation of poverty during the Great Depression has become an iconic part of the history of photography, yet his equally innovative works produced in the ensuing decades have met with less acclaim. This monograph is devoted to Evans s complete body of work, and it deliberately features many of the photographs that are only rarely seen, including the Polaroids he shot in the early seventies his last images. The photographer s consistently heightening influence in the seventies and his symbiotic relationship with legendaryMuseum of Modern Art curator John Szarkowski comprise the core of this revisionist volume.About the Author:
James Crump, Curator of Photography at the Cincinnati Art Museum, has written extensively about contemporary art and photography.
