Maria Morris Hambourg, Jeff L. Rosenheim, Douglas Eklund, & Mia Fineman

Book Description


"This illuminating volume includes more than 175 of Evans' finest photographs. Essays by the authors draw on newly accessible diaries, papers, and negatives now at the Walker Evans Archive at the Metropolitan that provide us with a Walker Evans that no one knew."--Bonnie Weller, The Philadelphia Inquirer

"All photographs capture light; Evans managed to seal and store it so securely that, like a day remembered as endless, it may never run out. . . .The crystalline rightness of his composition makes you think . . . of a guy going out on a road, like a hunter or salesman, and gazing at places until they bequeath the beauty of their natural form, as if it were hidden already, and needed only patience to flush it out."--Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

"This is a book on Evan's photography, not on his life. . . [and it includes] a series of focused, well written essays, on his development as an artist."--Jean Dykstra, Art on Paper

"Evans has long been established as a master, a maker of individual images that are authoritative in both technique and theme. . . . [Walker Evans] is destined to become the standard reference for Evans's career."--Benjamin Lima, Art Journal
