"The photographs of Walker Evans (1903-1975) altered the American consciousness; many of his images are fixed in our collective memory. His uncompromising documentation of poverty during the Great Depression is iconic in the history of photography, yet his equally innovative works produced in the ensuing decades have been little known and underappreciated. This monograph, spanning all of Evans's work, presents many photographs that are only rarely seen, including his last images, the Polaroids he shot in the early 1970s. The photographer's rising influence in the 1970s and his symbiotic relationship with legendary Museum of Modern Art curator John Szarkowski are at the core of this revisionist volume"--Cover, p. 2.
