The Hungry Eye

Evans, Walker

Code 2826
ISBN: 9780810991873
Publisher: 0


This small format reprint book is packed with 470 of Walker Evans' images, some of which are on the small side. But as a general reference tool on this great photographer it is ideal.

In a career that spanned nearly half a century, photographer Walker Evans immortalized the everyday people of America.
With 470 illustrations including 25 in color, here is a thorough overview of his work, which is honest and respectful, but never sentimental. Evans is perhaps best known for his unforgettable portraits of the rural South in James Agee's Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, some of which are featured in this book. Also included are slightly abstract industrial scenes; New York City subway passengers; architectural studies; and wacky, peculiarly American billboards and signs
