Walker Evans: The Magazine Work

Edited with text by David Campany.

Walker Evans was one of the most important and influential artists of the twentieth century, who produced a body of photographs that continue to shape our understanding of the modern era. He worked in every genre and format, in black and white and in color, but two passions were constant: literature and the printed page. While his photographic books are among the most influential in the medium's history, Evans' more ephemeral pages remain largely unknown. From small avant-garde publications to mainstream titles such as Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Architectural Forum, Life and Fortune he produced innovative and independent journalism, often setting his own assignments, editing, writing and designing his pages. Presenting many of his photo-essays in their entirety, Walker Evans: The Magazine Work assembles the unwritten history of this work, allowing us to see how he protected his autonomy, earned a living and found audiences far beyond the museum and gallery.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Eye Magazine

Rick Poynor

[A] revelation…. beautifully printed. If anything is going to prompt a reconsideration of Evans’ engagement with magazines, it will be this meticulously researched and highly readable investigation…. The range of Evans’ magazine work is hugely impressive and now it has been gathered together it seems all the stranger that curatorial oversight led to its neglect.

Jesse Pearson Reviews 'Walker Evans: The Magazine Work'

Jesse Pearson Reviews 'Walker Evans: The Magazine Work'

As a young man in the 1920s, long before he considered becoming a photographer, Walker Evans (1903-1975) wanted to be a writer. Not just a writer, but an important writer. That was his dream, and the burden of it seems to have been crushing. “I wanted so much to write that I couldn’t write a word,” he would say in 1966 to the New Yorker’s Brendan Gill. But unlike most frustrated authors, who have to settle for other jobs, from garbage man to CEO, Evans was blessed with a different—but just as ethereal—natural gift: his photographic eye. Lucky man. (And, it should be noted, he did go on to occasionally write very capable texts to accompany his journalistic photo work.)
