[A] revelation.... beautifully printed. If anything is going to prompt a reconsideration of Evans' engagement with magazines, it will be this meticulously researched and highly readable investigation.... The range of Evans' magazine work is hugely impressive and now it has been gathered together it seems all the stranger that curatorial oversight led to its neglect.--Rick Poynor "Eye Magazine "
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Walker Evans began photographing in the late 1920s. He moved quickly to define his aesthetic and his subject matter:
straight and sober photographs of American everyday life and its environs. Within a decade he had produced
some of the most significant photographs of the twentieth century, exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York
and published two landmark books (American Photographs in 1938 and Let us Now Praise Famous Men with James
Agee, in 1941). He wrote art and film reviews for Time (1943-45), was employed by Fortune between 1945 and
1965 and taught at Yale thereafter.
David Campany is a writer, curator and Reader in Photography at the University of Westminster, London. His books
include Art and Photography (Phaidon 2003), Photography and Cinema (Reaktion 2008), ANONYMES: l’amérique
sand nom- photographies et cinema (Steidl/Le Bal, 2010) and Jeff Wall: Picture for Women (Afterall, MIT 2011).
His essays have appeared in numerous books. He writes for Aperture, Frieze, Photoworks, Source, The Oxford Art
Journal, and PA magazine.

In 1945 Evans was appointed as the only staff photographer for the magazine and in 1948 he was named as Special Photographic Editor. This seems to have been a unique position with the publication because it allowed him to determine his own assignments, write the copy and get closely involved with the layout of his photos. There are pages of Fortune spreads reproduced here that show elegant designs with beautiful pictures on subjects that seem far removed from the business and finance aspect of the magazine, for example: the rural train depot; the architecture of the Brooklyn waterfront; American masonry; railroad logos painted on freight cars; the mills of New England. They all, of course, reflect Walker Evans interest in the vernacular landscape and other highly visual subjects. Magazine work is featured from Vogue, Flair, Harper's Bazaar, Life and other titles. There is an Appendix with seven published essays written by him between 1931 and 1960, all relate to photography.
A lovely book though I was slightly disappointed with the production (so four stars). It is unfortunate that the magazine pages with the photos, originally white paper, have been reproduced as a light ochre which gives the mono and color photos a rather subdued appearance. There are alternatives to this printing style, in 'Walker Evans at work' (Hill and Thompson, 1982) with about twelve spreads from Fortune they just have a thin black line to define the page areas with the photos and text printed in position as the original. Another way would be to print each page in the book with a light color and leave white spaces to define the original spreads then print the photos in this white space. Also the type on the essay pages is rather sloppy, the lines of the two columns per page don't line up horizontally because there is a line and half space between the paragraphs and several columns fall short (easily solved by making the images within the text slightly bigger).
Despite my production comments above there is much to enjoy in this book because Walker Evans took such wonderful photos and this is the first time so much of his magazine work has been revealed.
