Description
Although Walker Evans (1903–75) has long been admired as a seminal American photographer, it is only in the last decade that his originality and complex nature have begun to be understood. This major study of Evans, beautifully illustrated with 145 halftone figures, 134 duotone plates, and 53 color plates—including color magazine pages, commercial signs from Walker's collection, and his late SX-70 Polaroid photographs—is based on an exhibit of the Walker Evans Archive at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Six essays illuminate Evans' self-education and intellectual development, his interactions with other artists, his own definition of his goals, and his working procedures, offering a fresh look at every stage of his career.

"A first-class catalog.... The nearly 200 lushly reproduced black and white and color photographs prove ... [that] objectivity and a direct style should not be confused with lack of passion. The effort of photography, both physically and emotionally, is to compose poetry with images."—San Diego Union-Tribune
