Walker Evans is widely recognized as one of the important photographers of the 20th century. From the early street-life photographs of the 1920’s and his documentation of the Depression-torn South, to his experiments with colour in the 1970’s, Evans produced a large body of work, capturing something of American life. The J. Paul Getty Museum in California houses the most comprehensive collection of Evans’s work and this volume brings together the whole collection. More than 1000 photographs span 50 years of Evans’s career. The text places the collection in the context of the photographer’s career and his development as an artist, as well as in the broader context of the culture of his time.
