Walker Evans: Aperture Masters of Photography

Introduction by David Campany.

"Short Order Cook and Worker in Lunchroom Doorway on Second Avenue, New York City," 1932, is reproduced from <i>Walker Evans: Aperture Masters of Photography</i>.The photography of Walker Evans (1903-75) is introduced in a new, redesigned and expanded edition of Aperture's classic book from its Masters of Photography series. Evans helped define documentary photography and is considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. He captured the American experience from the late 1920s to the early 1970s with graceful articulation.
From 1935 to 1937, Evans documented rural America during the Great Depression while working for the Farm Security Administration. Much of Evans' work from that period focused on three sharecropping families in southern Alabama, culminating in the revolutionary 1941 photobook Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, with text by James Agee. His enduring appreciation for inanimate, seemingly ordinary objects and the vernacular as subject matter is evident in his photographs of shop windows, rural churches, billboards and architecture. Photography historian David Campany contributes a new introduction and image commentary to this volume, which includes some of Evans' best known and loved photographs.

Walker Evans: Aperture Masters of Photography, Girl on Fulton Street

Snapped on the streets of Lower Manhattan in 1929, Walker Evans' amazingly contemporary "Girl on Fulton Street" is reproduced from Aperture's redesigned and expanded new edition of the classic Evans Masters of Photography overview. Essayist David Campany writes on the generosity of Evans' idiom: "There was no forced technique. No gimmicks. No strong claims, either, to an independent art or to the persuasion associated with journalism. It was a thoughtful, reflective disposition towards photography and how it might describe everyday life and one's perception of it. Evans stood back from the white heat of progress and to the side of the mainstream values of twentieth-century America. This has also made Evans the most perplexing of photographers. The unadorned plainness of his pictures suggests 'straight speaking,' but it also leaves them open to interpretation. He understood the importance of that rich and uncertain space between the photo as document and the photo as artwork. He understood it far better than his critics and commentators who would later defend him as either artist or journalist." continue to blog
