Walker Evans

Share:

Walker Evans (1903–1975) is counted among the most important personalities of  twentieth-century photographic history. He first gained public recognition with his documentaries on poverty in America during the Great Depression, with an approach that went on to determine the genre of 'documentary style' photography. To this day, these early social documentaries from the 1930s are viewed as some of his most important works.

Walker EvansA Life's Work encompasses more than 200 original prints
spanning from 1928 to 1974. Along with many of his most iconic images, the exhibition also includes rarely-seen photographs such as portraits of farming families, abandoned houses or deserted factory buildings.

The final section of the exhibition contains colour polaroids, whose concisely framed, innovative visual style has influenced, even liberated, subsequent generations of photographers.
