The J. Paul Getty Museum holds nearly 1,200 prints by master
photographer Walker Evans, spanning four decades of his
professional life. Many of them have never before been published.
This catalogue brings together all of the museum's material on
Evans. Included are images both familiar, such as his photographs
of tenant farmers in the 1930s, and unfamiliar, such as those he
made in Florida in the 1940s and his late Polaroid studies from the
1970s. Keller's lively text provides essential background on the
major phases of Evans's artistic development, and a wealth of
biographical and bibliographical information. Altogether, this book
immediately becomes one of the essential studies of this American
master's long and influential career.
