Walker Evans: The Hungry Eye by Gilles Mora
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Walker Evans (1903-1975) ranks with Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen and Paul Strand as one of America's greatest photographers. When originally published in 1994, Walker Evans: The Hungry Eye was the first book to survey every significant aspect of the artist's oeuvre. This reduced-format version, identical in content to the previous volume, includes 300 beautiful duotone photographs. Evans was largely self-educated and began photographing regularly in 1927, using a small hand-held camera. He specialized in the life of the street - carefully observed views of American architecture, the roadside, and the people who lived in the nation's villages, towns and cities. Beginning with Evans's early abstractions, continuing through his three-year involvement with the Farm Security Administration and his breakthrough exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and concluding with the artist's experimentation with colour late in his life, Walker Evans: The Hungry Eye remains the most complete and authoritative view of this American photographic master.
