9783791382234: Walker Evans: Depth Of Field

This resplendent volume is the most comprehensive study of Walker Evans’s work ever published, containing masterful images accompanied by authoritative commentary from leading photography historians. The name Walker Evans conjures images of the American everyman. Whether it’s his iconic contributions to James Agee’s depressionera classic book, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, his architectural explorations of antebellum plantations, or his subway series, taken with a camera hidden in his coat, Evans’s accessible and eloquent photographs speak to us all. This comprehensive book traces the entire arc of Evans’s remarkable career, from the 1930s to the 1970s. The illustrations in the book range from his earliest images taken with a vest pocket camera to his final photos using the then new SX-70 because his regular equipment had become too heavy to carry around. The book includes commentary from three of Evans’s longtime friends, photographers John T. Hill and Jerry Thompson and professor emeritus (Yale University) Alan Trachtenberg. Their insight and first-hand experience give depth to their critical writings on Evans’s work. In addition to offering a broad perspective on Evans’s work, the book also clarifies the photographer’s “anti-art” philosophy. Eschewing aesthetic hyperbole, Evans wanted his pictures to resonate with a wide audience. At the same time, his natural curiosity made him one of the most inventive photographers of all time. What these photographs and writings attest to is a huge and timeless talent, which came not from a camera, but from Evans’s uniquely hungry eye.

About the Author :

John T. Hill was Yale University's first Director of Graduate Studies in Photography. In 1975, on the death of his friend, Walker Evans, he became executor of that estate. He is the author of several books. Heinz Liesbrock is the director of the Josef Albers Museum in Bottrop, Germany. His exhibitions and writings primarily deal with aspects of American art and literature, from Edward Hopper, Josef Albers, and Ad Reinhardt to Raymond Chandler.

Review :

// SELECTED AS ONE OF THE 10 BEST PHOTO BOOKS OF 2015 //

"Walker Evans is one of the towering figures in the history of photography. This massive book, which traces his career from his earliest photographic experiments to his most well-known works, is an essential volume for any photography library."

Slate.com



“Experts may differ as to the greatest 20th century American photographer: Edward Weston? Diane Arbus? Robert Frank? This book makes an exhaustive and convincing case for Walker Evans, who brought the irresistible force of his intelligent eye to bear on the immovable facts of the world. The best of his pictures still smolder with the heat of that fusion.”

San Francisco Chronicle



"[Walker Evans: Depth of Field] is a comprehensive and extensively illustrated publication that investigates the trans-Atlantic roots of Evans’ practice and his development of a compellingly lyrical documentary style. The book examines in detail the complex development of Evans’ oeuvre from his early street photography, to his iconic photographs of the Great Depression to his later embrace of colour photography."
