| Discoveries of new works by the great master of photography
Walker Evans (1903–1975) is undisputedly one of the most influential American photographers ever. His work altered the consciousness of his country, and many of his images are fixed in collective American memory. His uncompromising documentation of poverty during the Great Depression has become an iconic part of the history of photography, yet his equally innovative works produced in the ensuing decades have met with less acclaim.This monograph is devoted to Evans’s complete body of work, and it deliberately features many of the photographs that are only rarely seen, including the Polaroids he shot in the early seventies—his last images. The photographer’s consistently heightening influence in the seventies and his symbiotic relationship with legendaryMuseum of Modern Art curator John Szarkowski comprise the core of this revisionist volume.James Crump, Curator of Photography at the Cincinnati Art Museum, has written extensively about contemporary art and photography.

»The book seems destined to become the Evans landmark.«
Jörg Colberg
»It is a fascinating monograph; fascinating for its inclusion of rarely seen images, and fascinating for Jane Crump's essay which explores Evans's relationship with his work, with the discipline of photography, and with Szarkowski.«
»The best book on Evans in years, this will appeal to photography pundits.«
