Walker Evans: Decade by Decade

Published by Hatje Cantz
Edited and with text by James Crump.

Featured image, "Herbert Solow Lighting John McDonald's Cigarette, Croton, New York" (1943), is reproduced from <I>Walker Evans: Decade By Decade.</I>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. Back in print, this bilingual 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 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.”

Featured image, "Herbert Solow Lighting John McDonald's Cigarette, Croton, New York" (1943), is reproduced from Walker Evans: Decade By Decade.
