American photographs

"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.

  • "HISTORY OF ART & DESIGN STYLES: FROM C 1900 -. The progenitor of the documentary tradition in American photography, his principal subject was the vernacular - the indigenous expressions of a people found in roadside stands, cheap cafes, advertisements and small-town main streets. For fifty years, from the late 1920s to the early 1970s, Evans recorded the American scene with the nuance of a poet and the precision of a surgeon, creating an encyclopedic visual catalogue of modern America in the making. First published by The Museum of Modern Art in 1938, and often out of print since then, American Photographs has been the key touchstone for photographers and those who seek to understand the lyrical potential of the medium. This 75th Anniversary Edition, with sumptuous duotone plates complementing the elegant restraint of the original typography and design, makes Evans' landmark book available again."
