Walker Evans

Share:

Is there anyone unfamiliar with the terse black and white photos documenting rural poverty in America, taken by Walker Evans during the Great Depression of the 1930s? These images, commissioned by the Farm Security Administration, have become icons of photographic history.

Evans's impressive pictures captured daily life in America well into the seventies: workers on their way to factories, street signs, wooden churches and village stores. In the process, he developed his own particular artistic-documentary style, that influenced many photographers who came after him.  

The "Walker Evans – Decade by Decade" exhibition was put together by James Crump with pieces taken from the Clark and Joan Worswick collection, including works from all his creative phases: the viewer will acquire a good overview that includes Evans's well known pieces as well as introducing a number of previously unknown ones.
