5.0 von 5 Sternen America's most famous photo book 27. April 2010
Von Robin Benson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
THE 1988 EDITION. Confusing? Yes I know!

What can I saw about this remarkable photo book that hasn't been said before? Well, not too much. Actually not all the photos are American, three were taken in Cuba in 1932. I prefer the second section with thirty-seven photos of buildings and the man-made landscape in the eastern part of the country. Several of these are regularly reprinted, year after year, in books, magazines and now on the net in blogs or sites dealing with architecture.

The history of this famous book is quite fascinating. Over the years there have been four editions. Originally published by MoMA in 1938 (the five thousand copies were letterpress printed) to coincide with an exhibition of a hundred of Evans photos. Oddly forty-seven of these don't appear in the book and thirty-three in the book didn't make it to the exhibition. Even photos that appeared in both had different cropping or were from different negatives of the same event.

The second edition, in 1962, was again published by MoMA in an edition of four thousand copies, letterpress printed from the 1938 plates. The third edition, with the photos now out of copyright, was published by the East River Press. This edition is best avoided because it was printed by offset-litho from pages in the 1938 book rather than from the original prints.

This, the fourth edition, was again published by MoMA to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary in 1988. The eighty-seven photos here are printed as duotones, using a very fine screen, with prints made from the original negatives, but one exception which was made from the printed photo in the 1938 book because the negative had been destroyed.

The original 1938 exhibition photos have long been forgotten, (though if you are interested they are shown in Walker Evans the Hungry Eye) so it is this book that carries on his legacy. Unfortunately prices vary enormously for the different editions but you can see what pages in the original book looked like by checking out the Walker Evans: American Photographs (Books on Books).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Modernist Americana Classic 23. Oktober 2012
Von A photographer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Although I came to understand and appreciate his work somewhat late in my own personal photographic journey, Walker Evans today stands at the top of my list of my photography heros. Where early heros such as Ansel Adams and Edward Weston espoused the same philosophy of visual clarity, Evans refined this view and elevated the commonplace to the extraordinary. He did not romanticize his subjects, something often seen in the photos of Adams and Weston. Instead, he worked in "documentary style" with honesty and simplicity. His influence has permeated photography and continues to evolve in the work of others, sometimes without them even being conscious of it.

"American Photographs" is one of the icons of modern photography. This is the 75th Anniversary edition of the book. I have not seen the previous editions but I find it hard to believe they could have reproduced the photographs as well as they are presented here. This book is highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nearly perfect repro-edition of original, and a joy 20. Mai 2013
Von W. White - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I first came to know Walker Evans' American Photographs from a copy of the original edition owned by an uncle who bought it in the MoMA gift shop during that show. That was a beautiful book, with a wide sweep of subject and treatment, and this 75th anniversary edition is amazingly close to the original, except without the wear and fading. Reviewers gush about beautiful photo reproduction all the time, so let me just say that it is outstanding, without any fault. And the rest: this is a very nice book, and it will last through years of perusing by many hands. The images I think are also a fine introduction to Evans' work and career, though this is an early book, it represents most of his fetishes: signage, rural poverty, Americana and pop-culture, informal portraiture and candids (several from his secret-subway series appear here for the first time and not again for thirty years in "Many Are Called'). I grow fonder of Evans' work all the time, and find more and more in it to tangle with. I hadn't seen "American Photographs" in 20+ years, and other re-issues haven't always been so solid and carefully put together. Happily this is, and I recommend it very strongly (and the price Amazon charges actually makes me feel guilty!).

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must Have 28. Januar 2013
Von GP - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I have been building a library of books of photographers I admire or who can offer me insights into photography. I had my doubts about this one originally, but must say it is a very good volume by an obviously accomplished photographer. Recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen American Photographs - 75th Anniversary Edition 16. September 2012
Von Rodger Kingston - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Walker Evans' "American Photographs" is an essential book for any serious photographic library, and this new 75th Anniversary Edition is absolutely stunning. It combines the best of modern printing technology with scrupulous attention to detail, remaining as faithful as possible to the design and layout of the 1938 First Edition.

Since "American Photographs" has a history of being reprinted only every 25 years, and then going out of print for decades between editions, this might be a good time to buy it if you haven't done so before now.

At its retail price of $35.00, this elegant 2012 edition is a very good buy, and at the current Amazon price, it's an incredible bargain.
