Walker Evans and Company by Peter Galassi

Book Description

Walker Evan's radical photography of the 1930s demonstrated that unembellished photographic fact could serve as a highly poetic language. These are works that expanded the potential of the art of photography and at the same time defined a lasting iconography in literature, drama and film that marked advertising, movies and car culture as key images of modern American identity. This book focuses on Evans as a central figure in the art of the 1920s and 1930s. It includes work in photography and other mediums that influenced Evans or were influenced by him, or which resonate in a significant way with his imagery, sensibility and style. Among the artists featured are: Eugene Atget, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Mathew Brady, Stuart Davis, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Edward Hopper, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, August Sander, Andy Warhol and Edward Weston.
