Paintings by Cy Twombly, Agnes Martin, and Frantz Kline have been displaced from their positions in the permanent- collection galleries to make way for a roomful of Walker Evans pictures. They're hung in celebration of the seventy-fith anniversary of the museum's first one-person photography show and its even more influential catalogue. As in 1938, the exhibition includes pictures of people and places, many of them made under the auspices of the Farm Security Administration, the New Deal agency charged with documenting rural poverty. But Evans was never a strictly objective observer; for all their blunt simplicity, his photographs are sharply opinionated, as "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men," his 1941 collaboration with James Agee, made quite clear. In his essay for " Amercian Photographs," Lincoln Kirstein describes Evans as both a "visual doctor, diagnoctician rather than specialist, " and " the family physician, quiet and dispassionate. " However one defines his role, the photographer made work that was once plainspoken and eloquent - images that still define something essential and true about America and Americans. Throught Jan. 26.--Vince Alletti"The New Yorker" (07/25/2013)

[Walker Evans} made work that was once plainspoken and eloquent - images that still define something essential and true about America and Americans.--Vince Alletti "The New Yorker "

Published on the occasion of a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art, American Photographs fused Evans's avid learning from European books and journals about complex sequencing with his acute attention to bodies, faces, and places eclipsed by modern progress. No celebrities, no soaring skyscrapers -- in fact, nothing very new at all. This was a world persisting against the grain. The inscrutable photographs in suggestive, provocative order were the antithesis of the slick Life photo-stories Evans detested.--David Campany "Aperture Magazine "

For those who have been waiting for years to own this classic photobook -- one of the very best and most influential photobooks ever published, in fact -- this is your chance. To mark the 75th anniversary of the original 1938 publication, the Museum of Modern Art has reissued American Photographs for the first time since 1988 (the 50th anniversary). While there were previous reissues, in 1962 and 1971, the book has often been out of print and hard to find, which has caused secondhand copies to soar. Not only is it a pleasure to see it back in print at an affordable price, but, according to the jacket copy, the editors and printers have used digital technology to "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." Certainly this book, with its iconic play grey dust jacket, elegant typography and blind-stamped black cloth binding, looks and feels timeless.--John Dorfman "Art & Antiques "


An album of eighty-seven of Evans' pictures of houses, factories, people, and city streets offers an unadorned look at American society between 1929 and 1937. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Eine gute Sammlung von Fotos und schön editiert: die Fotos sind so geordnet, dass es sehr harmonisch wirkt. Einwandfreie Qualität — schön gebunden, gutes Cover.

Nice grouping of photography for anyone who enjoys the art of photography and a time in American captured on film. I especially like the size of this book - not a dominating 'look at me' type coffee table book, but a very classy 'side' table addition to any collection of hardbacks.

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!).
