Walker Evans: Labor Anonymous

Shot on assignment for Fortune magazine in 1946, this Walker Evans photograph of an unknown Detroit office worker is reproduced from Labor Anonymous, just out from D.A.P. Publishing and Walther König. "When I knew him, Evans was beset by troubles of all kinds," Jerry L Thompson writes, "money troubles, tax troubles, marriage troubles (he divorced a second time in 1972), health troubles, advancing age, declining strength: the full catastrophe that flesh is heir to. As he approached 70, most onlookers would have taken him (even by the standards of that time) to be at least a decade older. Yet every time he walked out to start his day he was ready to be an artist. Every day had some work in it—for Evans, work meant being an artist—and the work got done even if every practical concern—what ordinary people call work—fell by the wayside."
