A man in love with Americana, Evans was a sensualist, a junk collector, a connoisseur, a wit, a perpetual weekend guest. Charismatic and seductive, he attracted many of the brightest talents of his day. He counted Hart Crane, James Agee, Lincoln Kirstein, Ben Shahn, and Berenice Abbott among his closest friends, and with them he reveled in the intellectual and sexual freedom that distinguished the New York art world during his lifetime. Evans loved nothing better than a good party, and he attended all the best ones in the half-century from the 1920s to the 1970s. A social chameleon, he was as much at ease in bohemian Greenwich Village as in the heady West Side circle that included Robert Penn Warren, Lionel Trilling, and Alfred Kazin. Belinda Rathbone interviewed more than a hundred friends and colleagues of Evans' as well as his two former wives, and combed archives and letters to illuminate his singular vision and the complex personality Evans so carefully withheld from his photographs. The result is a portrait not only of an artist who profoundly influenced the generation of photographers who followed him but also of the artistically fecund times that nurtured him+-+5725400485324137448ocn019257752book19380.35Evans, WalkerAmerican photographsPictorial worksExhibition catalogs"More than any other artist, Walker Evans invented the images of an essential America that we have long accepted as fact, American Photographs, first published by The Museum of Modern Art in 1938, is the purest and most complete expression of his cool, unblinking vision. the eighty-seven photographs reproduced on its pages are as relevant and essential as ever, with Lincoln Kirstein's essay as their eloquent foil. American Photographs has been a key touch-stone for photographers and those who seek to understand the lyric potential of the medium, but it has often been out of print. This Seventy-Fifth-Anniversary Edition, with sumptuous duotone plates complementing the elegant restraint of the original typography and design, makes Evans's landmark book available again. For the first time, digital technologies aid in emulating the precise cropping and finely tuned balance of the 1938 reproductions, capturing as never before the look and feel of the first edition."--cover jacket+-+2979550846106316ocn000610284book19730.37Library of CongressWalker Evans: photographs for the Farm Security Administration, 1935-1938; a catalog of photographic prints available from the Farm Security Administration collection in the Library of CongressCatalogsPictorial works+-+035553158532498011ocn055665451book19660.33Evans, WalkerMany are calledPictorial works"Between 1936 and 1941 Walker Evans and James Agee collaborated on one of the most provocative books in American literature, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men (1941). While at work on this book, the two also conceived another less well known but equally important publication entitled Many Are Called. This three-year photographic study of subway passengers made with a hidden camera was first published in 1966, with an introduction written by Agee in 1940. Long out of print, Many Are Called is now reissued with a new foreword and afterword and with exquisitely reproduced images from digital scans made from the original 35mm negatives." "Many Are Called came to fruition at a slow pace. In early 1938, Walker Evans began surreptitiously photographing people on the New York City subway. With his camera hidden in his coat - the lens peeking through the opening between buttons - he captured the faces of riders hurtling through the dark tunnels, wrapped in their own private thoughts. By February 1941, Evans had made over six hundred photographs and had begun to edit the series. The book remained unpublished, however, until 1966 when The Museum of Modern Art mounted an exhibition of Evans's subway portraits."--BOOK JACKET+-+82615655859692ocn027896719book19940.17Evans, WalkerSomething permanentThe photographs of Walker Evans tell stories of ordinary people living in America in the extraordinary time of the Great Depression.

Once Evans accepted Jerry Thompson as a student, they developed an extremely close working relationship as well as a personal friendship. At Yale, at Evans's Connecticut home in Old Lyme, and during a number of field trips to other parts of the country, Thompson was always close at hand, helping in the darkroom, fetching and carrying, mounting prints for exhibitions, driving, dealing with the archives that were the accumulation of almost forty years of work, and absorbing all the time what Evans, always articulate, had to say about his interests, his intellectual curiosity, and the basis of his approach to the art of photography. By the time Evans's health deteriorated and he died in 1975, Thompson had become deeply involved with his idol, learning as much about Evans's foibles and eccentricities as he did about the man's genius. As a result, Thompson's account of those last four years gives us a precious insight into the mind and sensibilities of a great man. To remind the reader of some of Evans's most famous photographs, a number of them are reproduced here, along with informal photographs of him at home, and a sampling of his late interest in color Polaroid photography, published for the first time. In combination with an unusually sensitive text, this is a book of great interest not only to photographers and those interested in photography, but to all who respond to biography and the analysis of character+-+95679055054558ocn019388812book19890.50Evans, WalkerWalker Evans : Havana 1933HistoryPictorial works4347ocn022449459book19900.59Southall, Thomas WOf time & place : Walker Evans and William ChristenberryExhibition catalogsExhibition, pictorial works4335ocn042736445book20000.56Webb, Virginia-LeePerfect documents : Walker Evans and African art, 1935Exhibition catalogsExhibition, pictorial works3273ocn041315418book20000.53Evans, WalkerWalker Evans : FloridaPictorial works"Commissioned in 1941 by writer Karl Bickel, Walker Evans traveled to Florida to take the photographs that were published a year later in Bickel's The Mangrove Coast. These photographs constitute a little-known chapter in Evans's long career. Pelicans, trailer homes, dancing circus elephants from the Ringling Bros. winter quarters in Sarasota - the imagery Evans found in Florida was far removed from the Depression-era America with which this master photographer is so often associated." "Walker Evans: Florida brings together fifty-four of Evans's photographs of Florida, accompanied by an essay by novelist Robert Plunket, who lives in Sarasota. Plunket's wry account of the human and geographic landscape of Florida provides a superb counterpoint to Evans's photographs, revealing a side of Evans's career that may come as something of a surprise to many of his admirers."--BOOK JACKET+-+31101874352974ocn001622160book19750.53The Years of bitterness and pride : Farm Security Administration, FSA photographs, 1935-1943Pictorial works2962ocn004499702book19770.63Baier, Lesley KWalker Evans at Fortune, 1945-1965, Wellesley College Museum, Wellesley, Massachusetts, 16 November, 1977-23 January, 1978Exhibition catalogs2744ocn000289091book19660.53Evans, WalkerMessage from the interiorFotografisk billedværk, motiver fra USA 1931-19612721ocn003205015book19770.56Center for Southern FolkloreImages of the South : visits with Eudora Welty and Walker EvansPictorial works23010ocn276227016book20090.66Rosenheim, JeffWalker Evans and the picture postcardExhibition catalogsThis book focuses on a collection of 9000 picture postcards amassed by the American photographer Walker Evans (1903-1975) that are now part of the Walker Evans Archive at The Metropolitan Museum of Art+-+14736701382057ocn056574112book20040.76Fondation Henri Cartier-BressonDocumentary & anti-graphic photographs by Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans & Alvarez Bravo : [Publié à l'occasion de la présentation de l'exposition documentary & anti-graphic photographs, à la fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paris, 8 septembre-19 décembre 2004, au musée de l'Elysée, Lausanne, 10 février-10 avril 2005]Exhibition catalogs+-+9725670138245722ocn000134074book19710.33Evans, WalkerWalker EvansBiographyPictorial worksExhibition catalogsWalker Evans, more than any other photographer in the thirties and forties, defined the documentary aesthetic.

Photographers before Evans had certainly conceived of their pictures as art, but in order to make that claim they had most often aimed at a cultivated visual style that would advertise its differences from the vast mass of reportorial and vernacular photography. Evan's work of the late 1920s and 1930s, however, was direct and plainspoken, conclusively demonstrating how richly articulate and challenging a photograph could become by affecting no more than a hard, clear, observant gaze at the world beyond the lens." "Evans is the moving force of Walker Evans & Company, but the book, which presents over 300 works, in photography and other mediums, by over 100 artists, has a larger subject: it is a generously expansive study of a diverse, long-lived visual tradition. Beginning with the great influences on Evans - American vernacular photography, and the work of the Europeans Eugene Atget and August Sander - Peter Galassi goes on to chart Evan's own influence on later generations of artists. That influence may be direct, or roundabout; it may also be a question less of a definite lineage than of a general inheritance, a shared focus of interest or mode of approach."--BOOK JACKET+-+81571456357464ocn011235642book19850.53Ward, J.

Evans left to posterity a rich record of his creative process and inner life. From his earliest boyhood snap-shots to the seldom-seen color Polaroids made in the year before his death, Unclassified: A Walker Evans Anthology traces the development of this American master. Previously unpublished writings - fiction, diaries, essays, criticism, translations and his early correspondence with the German artist, Hanns Skolle, his best friend at the time - open up surprising insights into Evans's intellectual path, while previously unknown photographs from the Metropolitan's collection of 40,000 negatives and transparencies reveal the artist at work. The anthology concludes with telling selections from Evans's seminal collection of vernacular imagery: picture postcards, printed ephemera, and a shockingly prescient album of newspaper clippings from the 1920s and 30s that prefigures Pop and Conceptual Art by three decades."--BOOK JACKET+-+26729735484554ocn039533027book19970.32Evans, WalkerWalker Evans, simple secrets : photographs from the collection of Marian and Benjamin A.

The exhibition takes its inspiration from Paul Gilroy's influential book 'The Black Atlantic: Modernity and Double Consciousness' 1993. It features over 140 works by more than 60 artists. Gilroy used the term 'The Black Atlantic' to describe the transmission of black cultures around the Atlantic, and the instances of cultural hybridity, that occurred as a result of transatlantic slavery and its legacy. 'Afro Modern: Journeys through the Black Atlantic' reflects Gilroy's idea of the Atlantic Ocean as a 'continent in negative', offering a network connecting Africa, North and South America, the Caribbean and Europe. It traces both real and imagined routes taken across the Atlantic, and highlights artistic links and dialogues from the early twentieth-century to today. The exhibition is divided into seven chronological sections. Charting new forms of art arising from black culture and the work of black artists and intellectuals, it opens up an alternative, transatlantic reading of modernism and contemporary culture+-+7874289036+-+5622040485+-+5622040485Fri Mar 21 15:33:00 EDT 2014batch54675
