Walker Evans & Company by Peter; Museum of Modern Art Galassi

A Museum of Modern Art Book Walker Evans's radical photography of the 1930s demonstrated that unembellished photographic fact could serve as a highly poetic language. These works expanded the potential of the art of photography and at the same time defined a lasting iconography that recognized advertising, movies, and car culture as central images of modern American identity. Published in conjunction with the second of three cycles of millennial exhibitions (MoMA2000) at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, this book focuses on Evans as a central figure in the arts of the 1920s and 1930s.

This superbly illustrated volume includes works in photography and other mediums that influenced Evans or were influenced by him, or which resonate in a significant way with aspects of his imagery, sensibility, and style. Among the other artists whose work is featured are: Eugne Atget, Mathew Brady, Stuart Davis, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Edward Hopper, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, August Sander, Andy Warhol, and Edward Weston.

Approximately 440 illustrations, 60 in full color, 380 in duotone, 9 3/4 x 11 1/4"

PETER GALASSI is chief curator in the Department of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. His previous books, also available from Abrams, include American Photography 1890-1965 and, with Magdalena Dabrowski and Leah Dickerman, Aleksandr Rodchenko.
