A major figure in American photography, Walker Evans stands among Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, and Paul Strand as an artist of the first rank. Evans documented the look and feel of much of his native country in a notably distinct way throughout the majority of the twentieth century. This definitive retrospective of Evans’s career, which received France’s Prix de Nadar and England’s Krasna-Kraus Award when first published in hardcover, is now available for the first time as a reduced-format paperback.» «Prepared by John T. Hill in cooperation with Gilles Mora, Walker Evans: The Hungry Eye begins with the artist’s early abstractions and his project on the Brooklyn Bridge done in collaboration with American poet Hart Crane, and continues through Evans’s photographic studies of New England and New York Victorian buildings; his travels to Tahiti and Cuba; his work in Florida and New Orleans; and his three-year involvement with the Farm Security Administration. A highlight of this volume is the material from Evans’s highly influential show American Photographs at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, re-created in exactly the sequence that Evans established for the original exhibition.» «No broader or more comprehensive view of this important, innovative, and distinguished photographer exists to date. With all of the images superbly reproduced from negatives prepared by Thomas Palmer, this volume will long stand as a tribute to an American original.
