WALKER EVANS AT WORK
THOMPSON, JERRY L.
Through the evidence of trial and error in successive images and through Evans's own words this important book reveals how a major American artist actually worked.
The 747 photographs document chronologically his choice of subject and his lifelong technical experimentation. One sees the same subject photographed with different lenses and in diferent lights, and spreads from Vogue and Fortune demonstrate how he cropped and arranged his photographs.
An essay on Evans's photographic equipment and procedures by Jerry Thompson, his friend and assistant, Evans's unpublished introductions to two of his books, and exerpts from letters, interviews and lectures complete this unparalled exposition of creativity in action.
