Riassunto: The name Walker Evans conjures images of the American everyman.
Whether it's his iconic contributions to James Agee's depressionera
classic book, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, his architectural
explorations of antebellum plantations, or his subway series, taken
with a camera hidden in his coat, Evans's accessible and eloquent
photographs speak to us all. This comprehensive book traces the
entire arc of Evans's remarkable career, from the 1930's to the
1970's. The illustrations in the book range from his earliest images
taken with a vest pocket camera, to his final photos using the then
new SX-70 because his regular equipment became too heavy to
carry around. The book includes commentary from three of Evans's
longtime friends, photographers John T. Hill and Jerry Thompson
and professor emeritus (Yale University) Alan Trachtenberg. Their
insight and first-hand experience give depth to their critical writings
on Evans's work. In addition to offering a broad perspective on
Evans' work, the book also clarifies the photographer's "anti-art"
philosophy. Eschewing aesthetic hyperbole, Evans wanted his
pictures to resonate with a wide audience. At the same time, his
natural curiosity made him one of the most inventive photographers
of all time. What these photographs and writings attest to is a
huge and timeless talent, which came not from a camera, but from
Evans's uniquely hungry eye.
L'autore: John T. Hill was Yale University's first Director of Graduate Studies in Photography. In 1975, on the death of his friend, Walker Evans, he became executor of that estate. He is the author of several books. Heinz Liesbrock is the director of the Josef Albers Museum in Bottrop, Germany. His exhibitions and writings primarily deal with aspects of American art and literature, from Edward Hopper, Josef Albers, and Ad Reinhardt to Raymond Chandler.
