Walker Evans - The Hungry eye

Walker Evans / Gilles Mora

Availability: Out of stock

A complete and authoritative view of this American photographic master.
About the book Walker Evans (1903–1975) ranks with Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, and Paul Strand as one of America's greatest photographers. This edition was the first book to survey every significant aspect of the artist's oeuvre. Evans was largely self-educated and began photographing regularly in 1927, using a small hand-held camera. He specialized in the life of the street—carefully observed views of American architecture, the roadside, and the people who lived in the nation's cities, towns, and villages. Beginning with Evans's early abstractions, continuing through his three-year involvement with the Farm Security Administration and his breakthrough exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and concluding with the artist's experimentation with color late in his life, Walker Evans: The Hungry Eye remains the most complete and authoritative view of this American photographic master. About the author Gilles Mora is a scholar of American modern art. He is author and co-author of monographs on Edward Weston, W. Eugene Smith, and Charles Sheeler, and he has contributed to numerous books about Walker Evans and exhibitions of his work. He was editor of Cahiers de la photographie and, between 1999 and 2001, was artistic director of the Recontres Internationales de la Photographie d’Arles. (publishers text)
